Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The focus of this tour of Ireland is on Ireland as it is today. There is no mention of its rich and troubled history; rather, the emphasis is on its geographic features, the climate of the country and the pleasures and pastimes of its people. Smiling children busy at school are juxtaposed with young dancers, burly sportsmen, and lovely colleens celebrating St. Patrick's Day. Stunning color photos fill the pages and there is a liberal use of green and orange as accent colors in the crisp layout and design. There is information on Irish currency, famous Irishmen�from James Joyce to President Mary Robison, counting from 1 to 10 in Gaelic, and even a recipe for Irish soda bread. This serves as a useful introduction to Ireland and is part of the "Discovering Cultures" series. 2003, Benchmark Books,
