Synopsis

A Child's Treasury of Irish Stories and Poems by Yvonne Carroll

Drawing on hundreds of years of Irish folklore, there are tales of magic and mystery, of the mayhem caused by the little people , together with stories of love and heroism, some familiar and some less so. There are stories of great giants, clever warriors, jealous queens and mystical creatures. Read how the Children of Lir became beautiful white swans, how Fionn defeated the fire-eating dragon, and share the exciting adventures of the Red Branch Knights. Discover the story behind the Giant's Causeway, and laugh with the leprechauns as they plot their mischief. Interspersed throughout this irresistible treasury is a delightful selection of Irish poems - perfect for reading aloud to children of all ages.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
