Thirty years since its original publication, The Children's Year has been a much-loved book that has never been out of print. Now titled Making the Children’s Year, with color illustrations and new projects that bring it up to date, it will appeal to a new generation of families keen to engage children in creative play, the seasons, and the joy of handcrafting.
