The change of seasons is tangibly fascinating and the perfect introductory topic to Earth science. As Earth orbits its way around the sun each year and animals prepare for hibernation or migration, how do you greet the change of seasons?

Do you have a favorite time of year? How do you feel about the varying amounts of daylight throughout the year? Do you revel in the change of activities, the change in wardrobe, and the change of scenery that comes with the varying weather patterns and air temperatures of the seasons?

Spring, summer, fall, or winter, these 5 books embrace the seasons beautifully, highlighting the delights of our extraordinary weather and ecology here on Earth!

Greetings by Raven HowellGreetings

Written by Raven Howell

Illustrated by Ann Pilicer

Joyful, playful, and poetic, award-winning author Raven Howell’s Greetings blends the delights that occur between people and nature as the seasons change. The snow melts away and socks come off to feel green grass beneath feet. Bird eggs crack and birds sing. Bees buzz while children take in the wonders of nature. Owls hoot. Leaves change. Children sled on the slippery snow and then enjoy peppermint candy-canes and hot chocolate. Between bright and joyful illustrations and carefully selected words, this show of the seasons brings wonder and satisfaction!
