Weather, Climate, & Seasons
A young boy and his grandpa 
push aside their Christmas 
preparation to rescue a beautiful 
cardinal during a blizzard and 
nurse it back to health. The atmosphere is filled with clouds, 
all different types of clouds. Compare 
and contrast a variety of shapes and 
colors through the vibrant photographs 
in Clouds. Panting tongues and buzzing wings 
are two ways animals stay cool. 
Learn how different animals adapt 
to hot weather as they wonder how 
humans stay cool in the summer. The summer days get a little colder; 
the leaves turn from green to orange 
and red. Critters play in the time of 
changing seasons and remind us that 
the changes of the earth affect us all—
animals and humans alike! Rhyming verses take children 
up a mountain to explore how 
animals and habitats change 
as they travel higher and higher 
above sea level. Catchy twists on traditional songs 
have children chiming in about 
cactuses, camels, and more as they 
learn about the world’s desert habitat, 
flora, and fauna. All animals take baths to keep 
their bodies clean and healthy. 
Humans might use soap and 
water but some animals use 
their tongues, dust, or even let 
other animals clean them off.
Chicken Little may have thought 
the sky was falling but Peter Pika 
is sure the glaciers are melting 
and is off to talk to the Mountain 
Monarch about it. An adaptation of “This is the House 
that Jack Built, The seasons turn cold, and little 
red bat doesn’t know what to do. 
Should she stay or should she 
go? Find out in this tale of a 
young red bat’s first winter. Seasons change in the ocean much 
as they do on land. In fanciful form, 
children learn about plants and 
animals that are joined through the 
mix of seasons, food webs, and 
habitats beneath the waves.  Many animals gather in huge 
numbers at predictable times 
and locations. Travel along 
with them as you learn about 
what puts these animals On 
the Move.
Rhythmic text takes readers through 
the months as one lonely wolf 
howling in January becomes three 
wolves barking in the crisp March air, 
six napping in the warm June weather, 
and a pack-wide celebration in 
December. Cozy up for a rainy day read and explore 
the prairie ecosystem through its ever-
changing weather. Each month features 
a storm typical of that season and a 
prairie animal who must shelter, hide, 
escape, or endure those storms.
Children learn about the wide 
variety of creatures lurking in 
the lush Amazon rainforest in 
this award-winning adaptation 
of The Green Grass Grew All 
Around. A hurricane forms over ocean. 
Humans board up windows, 
gather food and supplies, and 
then wait for the storm to arrive. 
But what do wild animals do? Kate wants to save her flowers 
from the winter cold, and Mom 
teaches her to transplant them 
into pots. When Dad’s allergies 
mean the flowers can’t stay, 
Kate has to find them new homes 
for the winter. Freezing temperatures, scorching heat, 
and a storm bigger than planet Earth 
are just some of the wild weather you 
will encounter on your trip through 
our solar system! Why do trees lose their leaves? 
Find out with Papa Sparrow in 
this pourquoi folktale. A town plagued by tornadoes 
needs help! Travis the tornado 
tamer comes into town with a 
plan. With tornado season on

cover save their homes? Tuktuk found a furry kamik to line

bigger animals see him and want

convince them that no one needs 
one furry kamik – except a collard 
lemming.
