These well produced picture books cover a year in the life of kids living in Texas and New York.
One of the things I love most about them is their theme of diversity – the way they reflect the lives and cultures of the people living in these states.
The lively text and illustrations make these books a fun read for anyone with an interest in finding out about Texas or New York.

They will be taken through a month by month account of what it means to be a kid living in New York or Texas, learning about special occasions and customs.
