Take a journey around the world to discover some fantastic clothes worn by children around the world!
What do children wear in Russia where the temperature drops to minus 50?
What do children wear in the Middle East to protect themselves from burning sun and stinging sandstorms?
What do colours mean in clothes? Why do the Masai wear red, and Buddhist monks wear orange?
Find out in Clothes Around the World!
Children will love reading about their contemporaries in other countries, finding their way through clothes for special days and working days, clothes for hot and cold climates, and clothes made from the natural world.
Includes Art Station activities where readers are encouraged to use their new knowledge creatively!
I have been writing for many years in a number of different genres, from books for babies up to books for 11 year-olds plus. I like to try new things and tackle new subjects, so I don't limit myself to one type of book. One month I might be writing about history, and the next month I might be creating an imaginary story. Examples of my work have been selected for national Key Stage study in the UK, and in the USA I was commended by the Library of Congress for my work in non-fiction, which they felt encouraged reluctant readers. I work with visuals always in mind, and love the challenge of getting across information or an exciting story with good graphics to back it up. Lately I have been blogging about the craft of writing, and I've also appeared at National Book Festivals, which I think of as the most challenging thing of all to do! I get a lot of emails from children around the world, inspired by one of my books they have read, and that gives me great pleasure.
