    The four seasons

    A year has four seasons.
    Winter is the coldest season.
    After winter comes spring. Then it keeps getting warmer.
    Next, we get summer. This is the hottest season.
    And after summer comes fall. It starts getting colder again.

    In winter, the sun is
    low in the sky and there isn’t much light.
    The days are short.
    It’s often cold outside.

    In spring, the sun shines
    a bit longer every day
    and it slowly climbs up.
    The days are growing longer.
    Slowly but surely,
    it starts getting warmer.

    In summer, the sun is high
    in the sky. The days are long.
    There is lots of light and it’s often
    nice and warm outside.

    In fall, the sun starts
    being lower and shining less again.
    The days are drawing in.
    It slowly starts getting cooler outside.
