Wow! The seasons are changing, and after this week’s Irish hurricane, the wind has blown off a good portion of the leaves from the trees and there’s just enough time to start the clean up before the next ex-hurricane or ex-tropical storm moves in again by the weekend. I think this could be a fall and winter of wild weather! But why are there four seasons? And what makes each of them special? This week’s focus is on the four seasons (I apologise for neglecting the rainy season).

Books About The Seasons
Each week a few of us put together a great selection of books on a given topic and bring them to you to help narrow down the choices for you, each of our hosts share different titles, so have a look around each of our posts for wider choice.
To make things even easier for you, I have provided Amazon links to these books for both my American and British readers (just click on the link and you’ll be automatically directed to your county’s Amazon store). Enjoy!
