Teaching All Summer in a Day

All Summer in a Day

"All Summer in a Day" is a short story by the author Ray Bradbury. This science fiction story was originally published in the March 1954 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. The story is about a class of schoolchildren on Venus, which in this story is a world of constant rainstorms, where the Sun is only visible for one hour every seven years.
