Publisher: Arbordale Publishing ISBN: 9781934359532

Las estaciones cambian tanto en el océano como en la tierra. La primavera trae nuevas plantas y nuevos animales bebes, el verano oceánico está radiante por el destello de las luces del plankton y las brisas otoñales soplan las vastas aguas. En el invierno, las ballenas jorobadas emigran a aguas cálidas, igual que como lo hacen muchos animales en la tierra que se mudan a climas más calidos. Los niños aprenden de forma divertida, acerca de las plantas y de los animales que están debajo del agua, unidos por las diferentes estaciones, por la red de comidas y por el hábitat. Mientras la historia sucede en el Océano Pacífico, cambios similares ocurren alrededor de todo el mundo.
