All Year Round

CAD $34.00

A calendar of celebrations ,By Ann Druitt, Christine Fynes-Clinton, Marije Rowling This book is a festival store cupboard: a treasure trove of tomorrow's much loved childhood memories, all mingled together with a mix of coloured thread, delicious cooking smells, softly sparkling candle light and the snatch of a favourite song.

All Year Round is brimming with things to make, activities, stories, poems and songs to share with your family.  It is full of well-illustrated ideas for fun and celebration: from Candlemas to Christmas and Midsummer's day to the Winter solstice.  Observing the round of festivals is an enjoyable way to bring rhythm into children's lives and provide a series of meaningful landmarks to look forward to.  Each festival has a special character of its own: participation can deepen our understanding and love of nature and bring a gift to the whole family. All Year Round invites you to start celebrating now!

Marije Rowling is a painter and art teacher. She illustrated The Children's Year which was co-authored by Christine Fynes-Clinton who teaches music and crafts.  Ann Druitt trained as an artist and teaches in adult education.  Her twelve stories round off the book.

Softcover, 320 pages. 250 x 200 mm

Published 1999, by Hawthorn Press.

 

Inspirational, crammed full of information. A lovely book for festivals and celebrations. ~Education Otherwise

Delightful illustrations, hundreds of things to make, recipes to enjoy and songs to share, make this book a real family treasury. ~The Green Parent
