All Through the Year
All Through the Year
A personal almanac of a little girl and her family that opens a window on to each month of her year. Each spread is devoted to one month and we are taken on a journey through the Australian seasons as well as this girl’s loves and family traditions. It’s everything that’s fun about being a kid - all year round.
by Alexa Dretzke, Readings Hawthorn
This gentle, heart-warming journey through an Australian year is a celebration of our months, seasons, holidays and one family enjoying all of them.
Jane Godwin is a versatile, award-winning Australian author whose books rejoice in children and their experiences. From her Aussie Nibbles titles to the marvellous Minnie and the Superguys (sadly and reproachfully, out of print) and many more books, she captures childhood with affection and understanding.
Anna Walker first came to our attention with her exquisite illustrations for the poignant Miggy Tree by Karl Yeomans. In All Through the Year, her artwork is as beautiful, loving and exultant as ever.
Godwin and Walker’s first collaboration was the sweet story of Little Cat and the Big Red Bus. In their new book the delights of each month are depicted with evocative, lilting verse; this is a nurturing, sparkling world that children can explore, and will happily identify with and be inspired by.
This is an enchanting book about family, friends and the natural beauty of our changing, seasonal landscapes. It highlights the vitality and diversity of this genre and I am constantly enthused by the magic of picture books. As the opening lines say, ‘Open this book and travel your way, all through the year and treasure each day.’
