A great book for kids learning about weather and different climates around the world. Shows how on the same day, there is different weather experienced all around the world.

I would use this book to introduce the science unit on weather. It is important for the students to realize the weather is not the same everywhere and also what causes these drastic differences.

This would not only be a great lesson to start off a lesson in weather and seasons, but also geography. I think that this book has a lot to offer with the amount of different lessons it could be paired with. This book is about the month of March in different locations around the world and shows how they are different. This would be a great starting book to read before either a seasons or weather lesson. I would even go as far as to say that they could really be done together. The students are learning different scientific terms that involve both concepts as well. I think that the illustrator did an excellent job with creating the pictures to really capture what each location was to represent. ( )

This book would be a great introduction to a weather unit or a science or geography unit. There is a great map of all the places the book talks about where students can study if the location is in the northern or southern hemisphere and they can make conjectures about what they think the weather will be like. The words are poetic in nature and make you visualize the place and the weather without telling the reader exactly what is happening. The illustrations help paint this picture too. ( )

The author, uses one day in March to show the readers what it looks like all over the world. The author doesn't just jump to different countries, but also states in the USA. From a teacher's standpoint, the book can be used in the classroom, for science or geography. It's a great way to show children that everywhere in the world is different. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0064435288, Paperback)

On the same day in March...
Polar bears ride on Artic ice.
People in French cafes turn up
their faces to the sun.
Hailstones roll over Indian hillsides.
Rain makes a river in Kenya.

On the same day that it's icy cold in the Artic, it's foggy in Louisiana, sunny in Barbados, and blowing wild winds called willy-willies in Austrailia. In this poetic exploration of longitude and weather, with bright and detailed paintings of seventeen different places, Marilyn Singer and Frane Lessac show us what's happening from the poles to the equator-- all on the same day in March.
