An English Year: Twelve Months in the Life of England’s Kids
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.

Parents in Touch
“it’s a lovely book and will be great for classroom use, and act as a good springboard for further activities.”
“For British or Scottish children who don’t live in the UK or Scotland these books are a great introduction to parts of their heritage that they are unfamiliar with. An English Year has introduced our daughter to unfamiliar experiences, foods and traditions and has stimulated lots of discussion about my own childhood memories”
The School Librarian
“Much thought and imagination have gone into the creation of this fine annotated picture book and it shows . . . the pages are well designed and while they are full of colour and life they do not look cluttered . . Great care has been taken to present things throughout the book that children will like, understand and recognise”
