Can anyone tell me what the difference is between these two books?
Do you recommend one over the other?

I am looking for crafts, songs and celebration ideas. We are a secular/pagan-ish family if that makes a difference.
Thanks in advance

I have All Year Round and while it's certainly a volume I'll hold onto, I haven't found is helpful as I hoped it would be. It is definitely written from a British perspective and seems to emphasize Christian church festivals and observances.

All Year Round sounds like what you're looking for. The Children's Year is a collection of projects and handwork, some for mamas to make for children and some for mamas and littles to make together, for each season. All Year Round has songs, recipes, stories, verses, etc.

Flowers, fairies, gardens, and rainbows-- Seasons of Joy: 10 weeks of crafts, handwork, painting, coloring, circle time, fairy tales, and more!

Definitely more craft oriented. All it has is crafts.
