My fourth grade son read this book for his Science class The text is easy to read, accessible, and interesting, but he did think the illustrations were a bit babyish. This book does a great job of explaining and illustrating how the rotation of the earth and its relationship to the sun create the four seasons of the year Even without doing the little demonstration sugges This level 2 nonfiction picture book does a good job at introducing the concept of seasons It discusses with a few sentences and explanatory illustrations topics like the earth s rotation, day and night, and why the seasons are different temperatures Using the example of a pencil driven though an orange, they show children shining a flashlight on the orange while rotating it, to show the different seasons How the seasons are different at the poles and at the equator is also addressed, as is the difference between the northern and southern hemispheres There is a list of interesting facts at the end of the book. The new illustrations by Michael Rex will appeal to the fans of his fiction work They are bright and clearly show the concepts being covered, with occasional touches of humor The text is written at an appropriate level, and the concepts are reinforced through out the book Younger children may still need help interpreting the information, but older readers will come away from the book with a basic understanding of what makes the seasons change While this book would be very useful for read aloud in a wide range of classrooms, it is also a good choice to offer readers who have questions about the world around them or just want a break from stories There are many titles What gives us the seasons This book addresses the fact of the rotation of the Earth around the Sun and the results of this rotation Featuring diagrams, key vocabulary and hands on activities, this book brings science to life I enjoy this book because of its inclusion of activity and hands on practices, allows the students to feel involved in the learning process They are able to see how the earth rotates around the Sun, instead of just seeing it in images The vocabulary addressed is also defined in an age appropriate manner This book it perfect for lessons about the Sun or the Earth Students start to look at the Earth rather just their family unit and community Once we start looking at the Earth we start looking
