" Great book for teaching students about the seasons. It is helpful for students and their understanding of time changes and each season. I would use with "The Shortest Day: Celebrating the Winter Solstice" to help student comprehend and have the ability to compare. " said.

" The illustrations are colorful and detailed. Good word choice. Figurative language. I enjoyed learning about the ancient beliefs of the sun's existence and the current celebrations. Lots of interesting facts. Great addition to the classroom library. " said.

" Great book good for kids explaining the changing of the seasons - and its history " said.

" Once I found out Wendy Pfeffer wrote nonfiction picture books for all seasons, I was eager to check them out. I really enjoyed We Gather Together and The Shortest Day. As with those two, A New Beginning and The Longest Day- in turn- provided some background about the spring equinox and summer solstice respectively as well as some cultural celebrations. Activities are included in the back of the books. " said.

"A wonderful book for young children with bright appealing pictures. It explains what the summer solstice is, both in terms of planetary mechanics and its significance in human culture, from ancient times to the present. I like the global scope (thought it is written from a northern hemisphere perspective — June is mentioned, not December). There are four craft projects at the end. This book is very similar to The Summer Solstice by Ellen Jackson. Wendy Pfeffer also has books about the other solstice, as well as both equinoxes." said.

" the perfect gift for the pagan family in your life. " said.

" This is a fairly interesting book about a day of the year that most people barely notice, but in ancient times held great significance. World customs from a variety of cultures are profiled, and there’s a crafts section at the conclusion. " said.

" Summer Solstice Day's my favorite because it's all flowers and you can do lots of stuff before the sun goes down AND one more thing to say: you can play soccer (check!), baseball (check!), football (check!). " said.
