About the Author:

Grace Lin grew up in Upstate New York with her parents and two sisters. While the other sisters became scientists, Grace became an artist.
After attending the Rhode Island School of Design, Grace quickly set out to achieve her dream of creating children's books. Grace and written and illustrated several books for children, including THE UGLY VEGETABLES, DIM SUM FOR EVERYONE! and OLIVINA FLIES. Grace lives in Somerville, Massachusetts.

Ranida McKneally studied cell biology as an undergraduate at Cornell University and did her graduate work in behavioral ecology at Harvard University. Her studies have taken her on many fun adventures--from peering into tiny cellular worlds in laboratories to tracking wild gibbons in the rainforests of Southeast Asia. Through her work and writing, she hopes to engage kids in learning more about the wonders of the natural world. Ranida lives in Medford, MA with her husband, daughter, and fluffy collie.

From Booklist:

Gr. 1-3. Less workmanlike than Gail Gibbons' The Reasons for the Seasons (1995), this attractive picture book demystifies seasonal changes in a question-and-answer format. Each spread's boldfaced head-scratcher ("Why do my cheeks turn red in the cold?" "What makes a thunderstorm?") receives two smoothly written paragraphs of explanation; an energetic, arrestingly patterned painting featuring one of the book's four child characters; and an interpretive haiku ("Lily hears thunder. / 'You don't have to yell!' she calls. / Still, the sky grumbles"). An excellent opening and closing entry connects the earth's tilt with seasonal conditions around the world. The organization is a bit awkward. Although questions are grouped by season, they often apply more broadly, and some entries would have benefited from diagrams. Even so, children won't escape learning a thing or two about the processes described, and many teachers will find inspiration for language-arts projects in the haiku component. For a seasonal celebration in which poetry comes front and center, suggest Bobbi Katz's Once around the Sun (2006). Jennifer Mattson
