For me, the new year starts in September instead of January. The best family traditions of my childhood took place at the start of the new school year. When I smell autumn in the air, I think of buying new school supplies and the coming Children’s Book Week. I always got to choose a book. I continued this tradition with my children, and my mum added another tradition. She buys the grandchildren the Children’s Book Week Picture Book. This year, this book was one of the best picture books of 2012. So next blogpost, part two in my 52-weeks-project scheduled later today is about this book.
