Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
"The ground hardens" and "The sun rises later in the morning" are two of the six facts about the winter season presented here. Other topics cover what animals do in Winter ("Some birds migrate."), and what happens to plants during this season ("Many plants look bare and brown."). "What's next?" describes what happens at the end of the season. Part of the "Investigate the Seasons" series for young readers, sentences are intentionally short. Full-color clear, crisp photographs accompany the text. Teachers and parents can read along with the child and add further information as seen in the photos. Close-ups include a cardinal on a branch. Sections at the end of the book include a glossary, additional readings, Internet sites, and an index. A note to parents and teachers states that this series "supports national science standards related to weather and climate." This is a good general introduction to the season. From here, students can add facts they know or list seasonal topics they want to learn more about. The brief text and the interesting pictures make this suitable for toddlers as well as for beginning readers.
School Library Journal

K-Gr 2 - A simple text and expansive photographs bring each season to life while explaining changes in the weather, animal behavior, and plant life. The format consists of about three descriptive sentences per page in a large font, a vivid color photograph opposite, and colorful chapter titles in a larger typeface. Readers are referred to FactHound Internet sites. These books are excellent resources for unit study and wonderful for sharing or browsing.-Wanda Meyers-Hines, Loudoun County Public Schools, Ashburn, VA
