Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
Once again, Gibbons undertakes to simplify a complex subject without rendering it meaningless and uninteresting. And once again, she succeeds. With simple (and simply absorbing) graphics and well-researched, but brief sentences; she describes the astronomical phenomena that create night, day, and the seasons of the year on our planet.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-3-Gibbons seems to know just what teachers need to fill that open niche in their curriculum plans. In this title, she explains in succinct, easy-to-understand terms what causes the seasons to change in the two hemispheres. The text is amplified by her trademark illustrations done in bright, primary colors. Children have difficulty grasping the fact that the weather is just the opposite on the other side of the globe and why; this attractive offering will clarify that concept for them.-Jan Shepherd Ross, Dixie Elementary Magnet School, Lexington, KY

This is a great book to use when talking about the weather and the seasons. It works great with all ages. Younger kids love the pictures and the descriptions of the seasons and older kids like the explanation of why the seasons occur.
