Changing Seasons

The beautiful and dramatic, colorful trees offer us the opportunity to discuss the seasons. Aren't we lucky to have four big easily identifiable seasons here in the Chicago area! Check out these wonderful picture books that highlight the concept of change.

Seasons by Blexbolex is filled with simple, muted images and phrases that allow you to explore all four seasons.

Old Bear by Kevin Henkes follows a sleeping winter-time bear dreaming of romping through the seasons in his younger days.

Gobble Gobble by Cathryn Falwell begins in the spring as a young girl observes the wild turkeys in her yard. All the seasons are here and you can learn a bit about this very American bird.
