Roadmap: Tread Softly

Posted 2 months ago in More

Tread Softly is an endearing new collection of classic Irish poems for children. “…the best poetry is so magical, for any of us, at any age,” says editor Nicola Reddy. “Even if at first it seems challenging or obscure, all it takes is a striking image of familiar idea, along with lovely rhythm and rhyme – and suddenly you’re on the path to understanding and enjoying the whole.”

Featuring heavyweights such as Yeats, Wilde, Synge, Swift and Joyce, Tread Softly also introduces us to some less well known writers such as Ethna Carbery, Alice Milligan and Katharine Tynan.

Accompanied by beautiful illustrations by Erin Brown, treasure these with someone you love.
