    Well, there is a mistake in your English book. It was a misprint; it should be 'of' or, possibly, 'in'.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.

    Unfortunately some English text books and some non-native English teachers make mistakes with prepositions. When we were living in France, my daughter (then aged 14) who was and is completely bi-lingual, was marked wrong for saying "I was born in November", the teacher said it should be "on".
