If you are looking for a good informative read on Irish animals and different types of farming in Ireland, look no further! Irish Farm Animals is a great non-fiction book for older children. Glyn Evans breaks down the topic of farming in Ireland into interesting parts. It taught me about all the different types of farming today, like tillage which provides food products like our cereals and ones you might not have heard of like alpaca farms which breeds them for their wool.
With the help of the wonderful illustrations by Bex Sheridan, all you budding farmers who think ye know it all like me, Irish Farm Animals, even taught me stuff about animals I have myself, like my pony Sydney has a different bone and muscle structure to my horse Chase! Would you believe there are farm animals my sister Olivia and I didn’t know existed, like the Kunekune! I would give this book 10/10. Go treat yourself!
