Meet Luis, Alexis, Christopher, Ethan and Mia - Texan kids representing a multicultural blend that typifies our amazing state. They'll take you through a year in the life of Texan kids, from celebrations, traditions and events, to our everyday way of life and the little things that make childhood so memorable. A Texas Year is a picture book bursting with state pride. It's a snapshot of who we are as Texans, blending our modern-day culture and lifestyle with past traditions and multicultural heritage.
Its pages feature meandering text, dates and gorgeous illustrations showcasing five Texan children at play, at school, at home, and enjoying the sights and sites of our great state. From the plains and canyons of the Panhandle to the beaches and wetlands of the Gulf Coast, vibrant cities and friendly country towns, this is our Texan childhood.
