Description - A Book of Hours by Meredith Hooper
Suitable for children in Year 2 (age 6), A Book of Hours is one of nine books from the Cambridge Reading non-fiction strand. This strand has been designed to introduce young readers to information retrieval skills. This book introduces children to illuminated manuscripts through the beautiful calendar pictures of the 'Golf Book', one of the most famous illuminated manuscripts in the British Library. The pictures for each month are full of historical detail for children to explore. Illuminated borders frame the descriptions of the main activities shown and of how the book was made, recreating the impression of the original book. Cambridge Reading at Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) includes fiction, non-fiction, poetry and plays to offer children a variety of text types, authors and illustrators and provide a firm base for wider reading.
