Just like rotating toys helps to keep them fresh, rotating books in and out of your child's library also brings some surprise to reading. We rotate a small batch of six or seven books seasonally in our house.
While it's certainly not true that you can't read a book about blossoming trees in winter or a book about snow crystals in the summer, organizing at least a few books by season is a great way to introduce and teach the seasons. If you don't have a whole bunch of books about summer or autumn, checking them out each year at your local library is an easy way to rotate them.

, Bernadette actually went a step further and had her kids paint bookmarks and labels for each season and store each one in its own special box. We just store ours in a bin for not yet given toys or books in our closet, and place them on our forward facing IKEA picture rail when it's time.
In our experience, anything that makes a seasonal entrance (Easter baskets and eggs, a Nativity set), is considered quite special. It seems like a great thing to bestow upon books as well.
Do you rotate any books by season?
