The Dreaming Tree by Eithne MasseyBack home in Brazil, Roberto loved playing football. Now he lives in Ireland, and he'd really like to have a game with the boys in the park, but he's too shy. When his granny reminds him of the Brazilian story of the dreaming tree, he doesn't see how a story can help him! But maybe it can! This is a new series of books for modern, multi-cultural Ireland for children aged 6-8.

'four beautifully written and very colourfully illustrated books'
'could be used in the area of integration, geography and religious studies'
'the text is carefully graded in terms of language'
'a smashingly illustrated migration narrative'
