What a treasure! A real throw back to those popular books of my childhood where you have fabulous art work interspersed with text as Gaeilge and as Béarla. Each page takes us around the island of Ireland from The Fleadh, to Tír na nÓg, The Ploughing to The Aviva. Pictures and text as well as wonderful ‘can you find us’ on every page! A multicultural trip around the country that will open up the cultures and traditions to a whole new demographic!
A wonderful asset to any classroom or home library. A lovely game between two where you find the mini picture in the main picture, a whole class ‘cá bhfuil an….’ .
So many opportunities for language development in both tongues.
Suitable for all ages but more geared towards the younger generation. Older people and older children will just love looking through the pages and seeing what they can find!
This would also make a wonderful gift to anyone of any age who will love reconnecting with the Gaeilge of their youth!
