Did you know that Scotland is the most mountainous country in the UK? Or that Scotland has over 790 islands? Plus, they have over 200 castles? Who knew? Well, now you will once you read the latest book from EK Books called A Scottish Year. A Scottish Year explores the life of five Scottish kids that brings readers into an eye-opening adventure to all things Scotland.
Each month explores all the different things the kids do each month like taking a steam train called the Jacobite to different areas, celebrating Queen Victoria’s birthday and a game called Conkers. While certain things may be familiar to American children, like celebrating Christmas, spoiling moms on Mother’s Day and going to school, there are many unique Scottish ways of life and celebrations that make this book fun and interesting. This book is bursting with Scottish Pride with many traditions, gorgeous illustrations, and many sights and sites of Scotland. Brush up on Scottish terminology like curling, loch, Wellies, and something called the Braemar Gathering. It’s a fantastic read for children and parents alike and makes our family want to visit all the regions of Scotland.
