Review:

The Patterns in Nature series provides developmentally appropriate science content to beginning readers. Each book has a simplified table of contents, with understandable chapter headings, which encourages application of pre-reading strategies. The index makes topical information accessible. Each book contains a glossary, additional text suggestions, and internet resources. Photographs and illustrations aid comprehension and encourage further reading. Follow summer, autumn, winter, and spring in Seasons of the Year. Long warm days are typical of summer. Days begin to shorten, and temperatures cool in the fall. Every three months there is a transition into another season, and the pattern continues unceasingly. The northern hemispheres seasonal revolution combined with the Earth s tilt are diagramed to communicate the explanation of seasons, an area that corresponds well to NSES content. --NSTA Recommends, January 2007

Brilliant and interesting photographs, easily understood diagrams, and a short, informative text are the highlights of this Patterns in Nature series, which features titles on day and night, hibernation, phases of the moon, and seasons of the year. This title explains the rotation and changing tilt of the earth with fun photos for each season--for example, a little boy building a snowman next to children splashing at the beach. There are photos to make children giggle and others--like the icicles hanging on evergreens--that simply elicit a calm ooohhh. We can see drops of morning dew on the sprouts of spring and then it is time for summer again. The last page shows a circle diagram of spring followed by summer, then fall and winter: a pattern. Seasons keep changing in the same pattern. Each title features a similar pattern diagram on the last page. Children can see the principle and learn the words that explain that principle. There is a very short index, a list of additional books, and reference to the Facthound web site with links to age-appropriate sites for each book. This is an outstanding series of concept books for new and pre-readers; the photographs make the book interesting enough to use with older children who struggle with reading and concepts. --Childrens Literature Comprehensive Database, January 2007
