Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Eight short chapters describe the essential characteristics of winter. Winter days are the shortest and coldest of the year. The first day of winter in the Northern Hemisphere is December 21 or 22. The seasons change due to the tilt of the earth as it travels around the sun. Winter begins when Earth's axis points most directly away from the sun. Daylight is shortest in winter and temperatures are cold. Some places get snow. Lakes and ponds freeze over. Heavy snow and high winds can cause blizzards. Pine and spruce trees stay green throughout the year, but other trees lose their leaves and are dormant. Animals cannot find as much food as during other seasons. People wear heavy coats, hats, and boots. People in New York celebrate New Year's Day with ice skating, while people in Australia spend the day at the beach. The full-page photographs facing each page of text are exceptional. The vivid colors and detailed images in these pictures are outstanding. Includes a glossary, a bibliography, and an index. A good introduction to the fall season for young children. Part of the "Exploring the Seasons" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
