This book is appropriate for ages 5 to 8 in early childhood classrooms. The book “Our Seasons” talks about the difference of the four seasons. I like this book very much. It is very useful to teach children about the art and science. When children listen to this story, the teacher can ask them questions. For example, “Why do we have seasons?” “How many seasons do we have?” “Which one do you like?” Children can learn the knowledge of each seasonal section movement from the natural world.

"Our Seasons" in a non-fiction children's picture book that can be accessed through TumbleBooks. I particularly enjoyed reading this short, informational children's book about the seasons and weather due to its question-and-answer format. This children's book on TumbleBooks is an animated ebook. I would use this in a second or third grade classroom to teach my students briefly about how seasons occur and weather changes. Topic discussions I could pull from this book could include: wind, vapor, h ...more

"Our Seasons" is a great non-fiction children's book explaining the four different seasons. This book is an easy read for students and I would use this book in a first or second grade classroom. I would have my students make a seasons booklet and on each page of the booklet draw what that season looks like and also write a couple characteristics of that season in it. I could also have the students act out what each season is like. I would use this book in a science lesson. This book could also b ...more

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.

Genre: Informational

Summary:
this book tells the different seasons through haiku, using descriptive examples and actual terms to describe the differences of the seasons,as well as plants, animals that are indigenous to the season being described.

Critique:
A) Relevance of information presented
B) Although it is not presented in a traditional informational way, the key terms and different plant/ animals are given through poetry format. This is a unique way to present new terms.
C) When describing c

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.
