A personal almanac of a little girl and her family that opens a window onto each month of her year. Superb, wistful illustrations and beautiful rhyming text that will take us all back to our childhoods.

Open this book and travel your way all through the year and treasure each day.

From this author/illustrator team comes a timeless account of a year in the life of an Australian family. Told through the eyes of a child and featuring each month of the year, here is a book to give, to share and to treasure.


This gentle, heart-warmingjourney through an Australianyear is a celebration ofour months, seasons,holidays and one familyenjoying all of them.

Jane Godwin is a versatile,award-winning Australianauthor whose books rejoice in children andtheir experiences. From her Aussie Nibblestitles to the marvellous Minnie and the Superguys (sadly and reproachfully, out ofprint) and many more books, she captureschildhood with affection and understanding.

Anna Walker first came to ourattention with her exquisite illustrationsfor the poignant Miggy Tree by KarlYeomans. In All Through the Year, herartwork is as beautiful, loving and exultantas ever.

Godwin and Walker’s first collaborationwas the sweet story of Little Cat and the Big Red Bus. In their new book the delights ofeach month are depicted with evocative,lilting verse; this is a nurturing, sparklingworld that children can explore, and willhappily identify with and be inspired by.

This is an enchanting book about family,friends and the natural beauty of ourchanging, seasonal landscapes. It highlightsthe vitality and diversity of this genre andI am constantly enthused by the magic ofpicture books. As the opening lines say,‘Open this book and travel your way, allthrough the year and treasure each day.’
