Seasons in the city
Find out what different seasons look like in cities around the world in this stunning illustrated book!
In this beautiful new book by author and illustrator Megan McKean, discover what different seasons look like in cities across the globe.
You’ll find out how springtime in Tokyo, Japan is cherry blossom season, and that on the longest day of summer in Stockholm, Sweden it’s daylight for a whole 18 hours. Wow!
Seasons divide the year and bring about changes in the world around us. Different seasons bring warm or cool weather, and even big weather events like super storms and twisting tornadoes. Yikes!
When a country in Europe is celebrating the holiday season with snow angels and hot chocolate, a country like Australia is in the middle of summer, where celebrations might take place at the beach with plenty of sunscreen handy! And in certain tropical regions there are no more than two seasons: wet and dry!
Each city is different and ever-changing, and Seasons in the City celebrates our wonderful world in all its year-round glory!
