I'm looking for a summer activity book in (preferably British) English for my almost 6 year old to do this summer.
Last summer we had a Brain Quest workbook but: - it was huge - never went through it all and bulky to take on holidays - repetitive - with respect to the ABC exercises - I did not find the ABC exercises great - it had some American references (nickels, dimes, cents...) which I would like to avoid since I am not very familiar with America and hence feel uncomfortable explaining these references to my daughter.
Do any of you have any suggestions to share? I have a preference for British suggestions as that's part of my personal culture and education (and I'd like to pass on that part of my "heritage" to my daughter), but if you have American suggestions I'm not completely closed to them just as long as their American references are not too marked.

Amy: And to all other fellow zookeepers of course!

Wojtek: Yesterday my daughter used a Polish word in an English sentence. From time to time she does it (don't know if I should be happy about that), but anyway what was amusing about that, she said it with an English accent!

Wojtek: I feel the English accent in our monolingual family has seemed to be something unreachable but in that mixed sentence, I heard the difference. It surprised me slightly.

Amy: So cute Wojtek! And such a lovely piece of news!

Mayken: Adam Beck, Amy, she got a lot of ml exposure but there's only so many times I can watch a Bibi & Tina DVD. Glad she's back at school today.

Mayken: My daughter's school had the annual lantern pageant yesterday. It always moves me to tears when I see the kids stand and belt out the songs in our ml. This year, the ml kids also recited a short poem on St Martin.
