Review quote

"Highly recommended for primary libraries - you really must have the whole series. Where are we travelling to next I wonder?" -- Sue Warren * Pack your bags - we're going on a trip! * "These books are fabulous for schools. They are educational books kids will want to pick up and explore, and EK Books provides teaching notes on their website to give you inspiration for lessons and activities." -- Shaye Wardrop * Review: A Canadian Year and A Kiwi Year * "help to generate an attitude of tolerance and inclusiveness. These books would be important resources in any school or classroom library. " -- Kevin Brophy * A Canadian Year, A Kiwi Year * "Being so very different to Australia our kids love reading all about this foreign country, they can't imagine what -30 DegreesC feels like but they sure get very excited about the sound of ice hockey, sled races, skiing and riding the toboggan. Everyone is chatting about igloos and ice hotels, we discover the meaning of Inuit and why houses in North Canada are built on stilts ... Once you've finished `A Canadian Year' you'll be a true Canada connoisseur." * 'A Canadian Year' Giveaway * "this is the latest book in a wonderful series that helps children understand the different lives that children lead around the world" -- Trevor Cairney * Great New Picture Books * "a lively overview of the sights, sports, foods and places that make this country so unique." "A Canadian year and A Kiwi Year by Tania McCartney & Tina Snerling (EK Books). Two new books in this popular series which takes children through a year in the life of children in different countries. Lots of fascinating and informative facts and colourful, detailed illustrations. Great books to read before travelling or just to know how other children live." "the latest books in this bestselling series from award-winning author Tania McCartney and outstanding Australian illustrator Tina Snerling. This talented team...turn their attention to Canada and New Zealand for an inclusive and playful look at life through the eyes of today's kids."
