In Hawai‘i and elsewhere in the tropics, the change in seasons often goes unnoticed. Sun and Rain: Exploring Seasons in Hawai‘i, by Stephanie Feeney, will help children recognize and appreciate the seasons in Hawai‘i by calling attention to subtle details in the world around them. Color photographs vividly illustrating plants, animals, and weather patterns make the book suitable for young children, while older ones will find the clear, simple text engaging and instructive. A section for parents and teachers includes ideas on sharing the book with children of different ages.
Photography by Jeff Reese, David Boynton, Ron Dahlquist, Moku Kaaloa, Melissa Kim Mosher, and others.
