Sunshine Makes the Seasons is all about the sun and its characteristics. This book talks about what all the sun is actually part of in the world. There are effects to follow if the sun were to stop shinning. Although the sun shines all year long, we are colder in the winter and warmer in the summer. To see the effects of the sun on the seasons, we can experiment. An orange, pencil, flashlight and marker would be needed for the experiment. One person holds the flashlight and the other holds the north and south labeled orange on the pencil. As the orange is rotated, the light that appears on the orange is the sun. However, once the earth goes around the sun, the days get shorter. The sun and earth play big factors in our life.Overall, Sunshine makes the Seasons was a really good book. This book was very descriptive like all science books should be. The experiment with the orange on a pencil with the flashlight was just like the experiment demonstrated to us in class. I would read and experiment with this in a second grade classroom. The science content is accurate in this book and works well as an example. I could read this book to my class when talk about the four seasons and the effects on humans. The four seasons would be part of a science lesson. Also, this book could be read when I talk about the moon and sun.
