Full of seasonal stories, activities, crafts, poems and recipes, this book offers a guide to celebrating festivals throughout the seasons. A sequel to "The Children's Year", the book arises from the festivals workshops run by the authors at the annual Lifeways Conference at Emerson College, England.
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!
