Flowers bloom and start producing seeds. Trees covered with fresh green leaves are making food for themselves. Young animals born in the spring are striking out on their own. The days are long and sunny, and kids head back outdoors after supper to play. It’s summertime! This colorful, fact-filled title gives readers a chance not only to learn about summer, but also to develop their powers of observation and critical thinking. Fun activities, such as recording changes in temperature, precipitation, and the length of days in a weather notebook, give readers a chance to gain insights beyond just facts and figures. Expertly crafted to meet early elementary reading and science curriculum standards, How Do You Know It’s Summer? introduces young readers to science concepts and the two fundamental components of scientific inquiry—making observations, and drawing inferences from those observations.

How Do You Know It's Summer?

This introductory book on the summer season provides plenty of interesting facts about what happens in the natural world during summer. By characterizing that time of year and describing some of the weather patterns that typically accompany summer, young readers will be able to recognize higher temperatures and thunderstorms as signs of summer. In addition to the simple, informative text and attractive photographs, some of the pages call for deeper thinking about what’s being described or expand on what is seen in a photograph, both of which make the reading process more active. Colorful, interesting photographs provide up close perspectives on several common summer occurrences such as storms with lightning crackling across the sky, a family toasting marshmallows over a fire as dusk sets, and a bee searching for a flower’s nectar. As part of the back matter the book contains a short glossary with tiny photographs, an index, and science extension activities for readers. After reading this book, youngsters will know some of the simple science behind what makes it summer.
