Join Abigail, Henry, Grace, and their lively Fox Terrier, Beowulf, as they learn about the seasons in this lavishly illustrated, Christian friendly science book! Kids will learn about the seasons in different parts of the world, solstices, equinoxes, and a myriad of other topics brought together in a way to draw in both strong and reluctant readers!
There are fun comics to read, celebrations in other parts of the world to learn about, and even yummy recipes to commemorate each season.
Although The Science of Seasons teaches material that even many adults may not know, it presents this material in novel ways using situations that most children can easily identify with. Instead of presenting facts as coma-inducing abstractions, The Science of Seasons illustrates concepts in ways that are easily absorbed and readily understood by young minds. Concrete examples make science memorable and help build retention.
After kids are done with the storybook, they can delve into an exciting companion resource. The Science of Seasons Learn-and-Play Activities book is stuffed with over 125 pages of engaging things to learn and do that expand on the topics in The Science of Seasons. Kids can bring to life the lessons they are learning with character cutouts and playsets, fill out the make your own comic templates, and create a globe of the earth for fun experiments and much more!

I feel there is a great need for wholesome, fun, Christian-friendly books on a variety of integrated topics. My books are evolution-free, feature kids who dress modestly, and the relationship between siblings is loving, but realistic. I’ve created books I would feel good handing to my own children. My characters are respectful to their parents and readers don’t have to worry about the all too pervasive societal pressure creeping into my stories. At the same time, I want children’s eyes opened to the larger world around them, by introducing other cultures and moving beyond the boundaries of the United States. God has made an amazing world and I want kids to see that in my books. I strive to present characters that are innocent, intelligent and inquisitive.
While my books are God honoring, I don’t think they are preachy, and families who aren’t Christian can still benefit from the solid science concepts, information about other cultures and a fun story with interesting activities.
I hope your family loves learning with Abigail, Henry, Grace, and Beowulf!
