Nomination for Eve Pownall Award – Portrait of Spain for kids


Not your average information book. I am not sure why Spain was chosen as the subject, (not usually subject matter for an Australian Award), but it is a very interesting choice. The book covers everything from traditions, famous people, language, the arts, sport and activities.

Some of the articles are written with humour.

This will probably be best for children doing an alternative kind of project on Spain, children with a liking for Horrible Histories and those who don’t like ploughing through heavy text books.

An acquired taste.
