Beginner’s reading: Lily and the four seasons

From English for Everyone website:

Lilly loves her new town. She loves the mall. She loves the parks. She also loves her school. Most of all, though, Lilly loves the seasons. In her old town, it was hot all of the time.
Sometimes it is cold in Lilly’s new town. The cold season is in winter. Once in a while it snows. Lilly has never seen snow before. (…)
In spring, flowers bloom and the trees turn green with new leaves. Pollen falls on the cars and windowsills and makes Lilly sneeze. (…)
In summer, Lilly wears her old shorts and sandals— the same ones she used to wear in her old town. It’s hot outside, and dogs lie in the shade. Lilly and her friends go to a pool or play in the water sprinkler. (…)
Lilly’s favorite season is autumn. In autumn, the leaves on the trees turn yellow, gold, red, and orange. Halloween comes in autumn, and this is Lilly’s favorite holiday. (…)
One evening in autumn, Lilly and her mom are on sitting together on the porch. Mom tells Lilly that autumn is also called “fall”. This is a good idea, Lilly thinks, because in fall all of the leaves fall down from the trees.
