Joining the Our World series for very young readers, this sweet board book about daily life in Ireland was created by an Irish author and illustrator. Maidin! Come along for a sunny (then rainy!) day in Ireland. Count sheep on the farm, practice hurling, and make a wish on a rainbow. Irish author Muireann Ní Chíobháin and illustrator Fuchsia MacAree draw on their personal experiences to create this sweet board book as part of the Our World series for very young readers. AGES: 0 to 4 AUTHOR: Muireann Ní Chíobháin is a children’s author and a proud Irish speaker. When she’s not writing books or TV shows, you’ll find her in the sea, doodling in her sketchbook or trying to entertain her very energetic young sons with stories and songs. Fuchsia MacAree is an artist and illustrator based in County Clare in the west of Ireland. Her work highlights quiet moments of contemplation, details in nature, and observations from everyday Irish life. She uses simplified perspectives and a distinctive palette and has been featured in exhibitions and publications worldwide. SELLING POINTS: .
