We all know there are four seasons in a year. But HOW do we know? Join intrepid young scientist-adventurer Joulia Copernicus on a journey around the world as she explains with humor and wit how we know what causes the seasons.

Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall — we all have a favorite season. But what makes the seasons happen in the first place? Ellie Peterson’s clear, concise language and bold, kid-friendly illustrations bring science to life through narrator Joulia Copernicus, a strong and adventurous kid scientist. Kids will laugh while learning at the same time about the science behind the changing of the seasons throughout the year.

Praise for The Reason for the Seasons

Joulia Copernicus, a young scientist in a white lab coat and safety goggles, returns to help readers learn why seasons exist. The (book’s) logical structure starts with misconceptions and moves toward understanding, but it is the full-color illustrations, bristling with fun details pertaining to the seasons and anthropomorphic planetary bodies, that make this book stand out. Joulia’s obvious enthusiasm, accessible language, and the use of sequential visual formats actively involve kids in thinking about scientific concepts. A breezy, information-packed, visually attractive explanation of an important elementary school science topic.
