Secrets of the Seasons:Orbiting the Sun in Our Backyard

Kathleen Weidner Zoehfeld

Alice and her friend Zack explore the reasons for the seasons. Noticing the changes as fall turns into winter, spring, and then summer, Alice explains how the earth's yearlong journey around the sun, combined with the tilt in the earth's axis, makes the seasons happen. Two very helpful - and very funny - chickens give more science details and further explanation through charts, diagrams, and sidebars. Ages 4 to 9.
