artwork but much of the interesting 'unique to England' type of facts and events are named
but not explained, which is zero help to a young reader. One example of this is
Cricket, in the image it does look like a sport, but with no description its not very helpful to
young readers. As an entire book about one countries children, would a
library buy an entire series of every single country? I must say I prefer a
single book that compares lives of say 5 different children in 5 different countries.
