From the Arctic tundra to the African plains, the changing of the seasons keeps every creature and plant working together in perfect balance. Discover the sweet smells and sounds of the meadows in springtime, when the flowers and trees begin to bud and birds fill the skies. Marvel at the northern lights that illuminate the Arctic sky in the winter. Meet the underwater animals that live in boggy creeks in Australia during the summer. With simple facts about the wildlife and plants that change through every season, this is the perfect book for all nature lovers.
What I loved: This interactive book is a view of different climates, locations, and the amazing plants and animals that live there. The changes through seasons as well as how those seasons are defined are really interesting. I loved the facts on the back of each partial page flap that give more information and cool facts about some of the animals and trees. This makes it all the more entertaining and educational. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous, and I love the inclusion of so many animals along with their habitats that add some interest and details to keep young attention spans.
The poems at the beginning of each section, as well as those at the beginning and end of the book add some lovely melody to the reading. Although the facts are limited in scope, there is still a lot to learn and think about when we talk about seasons, and I appreciated the way the book introduces the topic of the way plants and animals adapt with the seasons.
Final verdict: Lovely, educational, and interactive, SEASONS is a fun picture book to explore with plenty of locations, changes, and cool facts to learn. Recommend for elementary school aged picture book readers to spark interest in the many topics within.
