Bibliographic Information: Lin, G., & McKneally, R. (2006). Our seasons. Watertown: Charlesbridge.
Brief Annotation: This book answers the many questions about weather that we as teachers may not be able to necessarily answer, keeping them in kid-friendly terms. It also accompanies these answers with full page pictures and children playing.
Grade Level: 2
Readers who will like this: This book will especially interest those very curious students who are always asking those questions because they want to know how everything functions.
Rating/Response: 5, this answered many questions that even I was curious about, it made them comprehensible for children and that is what made me love this book so much.
One question you would ask before a read aloud: Who can describe what a season is?
Reading Strategy: Science
Rationale for strategy: This book would be very helpful if your students were having a difficult time grasping weather, seasons or understanding how it all works. It would also make a great read to use at the beginning or ending of a unit to assess student knowledge.
