This book explains all the curiosities that come with the changing of seasons. You'll find answers to questions like:
Why do the leaves change color?
How come I can see my breath in the cold?
Why do my cheeks get red in the cold?

Students can use this book as a reference for research assignments, and explore how to write informational pieces.
Students can use the facts from this book to compare and contrast seasons. It's also a great source for new science vocabulary as well.

Great book, that explains the reason for seasons. I really like that this book do not need to be read in one sitting. The set-up makes it easy to focus on one season at a time. The author also chose to write the book with two types of writing. On one page you will find informational text for the teacher to read, on the other side there is one or two story lines that some students could read on their own. Very informative and great pictures.

Okay.. did not realize that the short text was a haiku of every picture. Missed that. I did notice all the different kids for each season and appreciated the many representations. A lot of technical information about components of the seasons is provided as an answer to a question for each picture, too. I like that format, but wondering how much can be shared (and understood) while reading the story.

A really nice book about the seasons in a nice format. On one page
is a haiku about something related to one of the four seasons and on the facing page is a longer explanation about it. Nice illustrations too.
