I forget how much I love old Irish stories like Fionn agus Na Fionna and the Tuatha Dé Danann until something like the Family Times Fables Book series arrives on my doorstep. Not only do I get to waltz down Celtic memory lane, and my Old Irish studies at University College Dublin, but I am inspired to pass on these fabulous tales to the kids.
And author Wayne Kearns makes that very easy with what he has done here. There are not one, but two books for each tale – one is the story, the text and the beautiful illustrations, and the other is a copy of the first, but left blank for your kids to colour in. I think that is a GREAT idea, because that way, you get to relive the story in a more interactive way, and thus heightening your child’s opportunity to really engage, learn and remember the detail. I say Bravo! to Wayne!
We have a copy of ‘Cú Chulainn’, including the accompanying colouring book, to giveaway to one lucky reader. To enter:
