We were delighted in our class to be given the chance to review such a beautiful book. “Tread Softly, Classic Irish Poems for Children” gathers some of Ireland’s most cherished poems in this anthology. Beautiful illustrations by Erin Brown bring these poems to life.

This book became part of our 5th class daily life. We used it as a great way to transition between subjects also. One student brought it home and her mother commended it by saying it reignited her daughter’s interest in poetry!

I would highly recommend this book for senior classes. It would also make a lovely Christmas gift for a primary school child. I would give it 10/10!
