The things our kids love most about our holidays to The Netherlands is visiting the place I grew up in, looking at the house I used to live in, seeing the school I went to, hearing about special Dutch traditions and simply learning how ordinary Dutch kids spend their childhood. The fact that kids can relate to other children and find them very interesting is no secret, which is why the A Kids Year book series by Aussie author Tania McCartney is such a hit:
This month two brand new titles have joined the A Kids Year family, starting with A Texas Year (RRP $19.99) which takes young readers on a journey around Texas guided by five Texan children (and you don’t even have to hop on a plane to come along!).
Life is never boring when you live in Texas, with so many cultures living together there is always something fun, exciting or special to do. In true ‘A Kids Year’ style the book is divided over twelve months and is filled with interesting Texan facts that kids will find super interesting. The colourful illustrations and playful, easy-to-read design makes this an enjoyable read that is both cool and educational at the same time.
Discover Texan places to visit like the Johnson Space Centre, the Comal River or the Canyons, learn about festivities like Oktoberfest, Las Posadas or the Texas Folklife Festival, spot mule deers, Texas Longhorns and rattlesnakes or get hungry looking at cheese enchiladas, Bundt Cake or fried dough, I bet after reading A Texas Year the kids can’t wait to pick their next holiday destination.
You can find the Kids Year series in leading book stores across Australia or online in the EK Books Shop.
