A Scottish Year

Twelve Months in the Life of Scotland’s Kids

Tania McCartney & Tina Snerling


Meet Isla, Sophie, Dominik, James and Rashida — Scottish children representing a multicultural blend of culture and race that typifies our beautiful country. They will take you through a year in the life of Scottish kids, from celebrations to traditions to events, to our everyday way of life and the little things that make childhood so memorable. They are our Scottish childhood.

A Scottish Year is a picture book bursting with national pride. It is a snapshot of who we are as a nation, blending our modern-day culture and lifestyle with past traditions and strong heritage. Its pages feature meandering text, dates and gorgeous illustrations, showcasing our five Scottish children at play, at school, at home, and enjoying the sights and sites of Scotland — from our heather-strewn Highlands to our historical cities, pristine outer islands and charming rural towns.

Tania McCartney is an award-winning author, editor, illustrator and founder of highly regarded children’s literature website Kids’ Book Review and the 52-Week Illustration Challenge. Her previous titles with Tina Snerling are Peas in a PodTottie and Dot, and the bestselling An Aussie Year.

Tina Snerling is an illustrator, graphic designer, creator and Mother. She is privileged to spend the most part of her days daydreaming out her sundrenched window, while creating worlds that allow her to travel anywhere without leaving her studio. 

SPECIFICATIONS: Hardback (PLC) | 245 mm x 255 mm | 32 Pages | Colour |
