One Year with Kipper - Seasons, weather

This book looks at the seasons and weather through the eyes of Kipper the dog. This provides a nice link into work on seasonal change as children work to observe changes across the four seasons and observe and describe the weather associated with the seasons and how day length varies. It is worth mentioning that although we think of the summer as being hot and sunny, there are still rainy cold days and there may also be sunny days in the winter!

A lovely non-fiction text which links to this topic is The Wild Weather Book by Fiona Danks and Jo Schofield. Although this book is partly aimed at adults and aims to give lots of ideas for getting outside with children it is well illustrated with photographs on every page and will certainly be enjoyed by children and will inspire them to get outside whatever the weather.

 Alfie Weather by Shirley Hughes is another book that will spark conversation with children
