A very simple and sweet concept book about different seasons, colors, and time of day with beautiful illustrations (I LOVE Petra Mathers' vibrant colors!). ...more

Can you tell me the seasons that the book describes? Do you know what a summer day is like? Or a fall afternoon, or an early winter morning? What about Spring?

Brown mud, brown trees, sky of gray… Opening to the Tell me a Season prepares readers to the different colors that paint different seasons. Simplistic sober portraits of seasons conjures the lyrical Four Seasons of Vivaldi in its ability to contrast the differences of the seasons.

Vividness of the pictures complement the lithe words that dance on our tongue makes this visually and orally compelling book for our readers. And yet, the complexities of the seasons is well represented in the details
This book is all about the different seasons. There are pictures of the different seasons and short words and phrases that describe the seasons. This book would be very good for young students because they would be able to read and understand it easily.

I think this book is good for having the students learn about different seasons, but also it has good describing words. I like the illustrations as well. I think I would use this book in the future if I teacher younger children, because it is a simple, yet fun book for them.

My two-year-old enjoyed this book. It's a neat concept: it describes and illustrates the colors of a few things and then puts them together into a seasonal scene. It's not always the colors you would expect for a particular season, either. ...more

This is a great book for young children. It simply describes the seasons for young children to understand. I think Kindergarden and 1st grade.

Waaaaay too small to use during a storytime, but perfect size to fit in a small person's hands. Demonstrated colors in conjunction with seasons. ...more
