Item description for Ocean Seasons by Ron Hirschi & Kirsten Carlson...

An introduction to marine food webs and habitats joins the humpback whales in their ocean journey as they migrate through seasonal changes.

Publishers Description
Seasons change in the ocean much as they do on land. Spring brings new plants and baby animals, while summer oceans are aglow with sparkly plankton lights, and autumn winds blow across the open water. In winter the humpback whales migrate to warmer waters, just as some land animals move to warmer climates. The cycle begins again as they return to the northern waters in the spring. In fun, fanciful form, Ocean Seasons introduces plants and animals that are joined through the mix of seasons, food webs and habitats beneath the waves. While set in the Pacific, similar changes occur in the Atlantic also.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ocean Seasons?

If the ocean fascinates you, you'll love this book  Sep 12, 2007
We, on land, are not the only ones who experience seasons. The oceans experience seasons of their own. Only their seasons are told by life cycles and migrations of animals instead of by the colorful maple trees. In this almost hypnotic telling, readers can learn some of the many interesting facts of the changing seasons of the ocean.

This is a wonderful read-aloud. It is smooth, lovely and nearly lyrical. With the right tone of voice I think it could lure a child right to sleep. But it does more than that. Full of interesting facts, it introduces children to the beautiful marine world.

Even though I'm a Kansas girl, I have always been fascinated by the ocean and the life that it holds. This book allows me to share some of that fascination with my children. While we read, we had many interesting discussions about various aspects of ocean life. Every time we turned the page another question would be asked. With that in mind, I look forward to using this book as a bouncing off point in my science class this fall.

Nothing quite grabs a child's attention like a gorgeously illustrated picture book and this one will accomplish that nicely. Especially handy are the activity sections at the end of the book for curious minds that want to know more.

Armchair Interviews says: Wonderful look at the oceans.
Puffins abound...  Jul 15, 2007
My daughter Bethany loves Puffins and went absolutely wild over all the illustrations of this book!
The Ocean Has Seasons Too!  Jul 10, 2007
Accurately sweet illustrations and edifying text pull the reader into Ocean Seasons. The book travels through the seasons in the ocean, particularly the northern Pacific ocean. It highlights animals, their habits, habitats, and their particular place in the food chain. As an example larger fish dine on smaller fish that dine on shiny plankton.

There is a lyricism in author Ron Hirschi's prose, while Kirsten Carlson's illustrations have a soft movement to match. Children will enjoying copying and playing with the food cards in the activity section while parents and teachers can lead children into deeper study with the mini-encyclopedic pages to follow. This book is highly recommended for children 3 - 7.
