The Lovereading4Kids comment
Divided into four sections, these stories from Ireland come from the long established story telling traditions of the country. Some, such as the story of the Children of Lir are mythological, others capture the magic Tír na nÓg, the enchanted world of eternal life or the special magical qualities of the king of the Leprechauns. All rbing alive the best traditions of Irish story telling which are made easy to read aloud – especially because of the helpful pronunciation guide and glossary.
There are 'Stories from' books covering the whole of the British Isles. Click on the one you are interested in finding out more about.
