Synopsis

An English Year Twelve Months in the Life of England's Kids by Tania McCartney

Meet Aman, Victoria, Amelia, Tandi and George - English children representing a multicultural blend of culture and race that typifies our beautiful country. They will take you through a year in the life of English kids, from celebrations to traditions to events, to our everyday way of life and the little things that make childhood so memorable. They are our English childhood. An English Year is a picture book bursting with national pride. It is a snapshot of who we are as a nation, blending our modern-day culture and lifestyle with past traditions and strong heritage. Its pages feature meandering text, dates and gorgeous illustrations showcasing our five English children at play, at school, at home, and enjoying the sights and sites of England - from the northern moors and breathtaking Lake District, to our pebbly seasides, bustling cities and historical country towns.
