Description

Written and illustrated by children in Sligo from St Edward’s National School, Our Lady of Mercy Primary School and St Enda’s National School, this book is a collection of nursery rhymes, jokes and tall tales. The artwork was created using a variety of techniques, including pastels, charcoal drawings and card printing, to accompany the text. This book can be used in the classroom to explore rhymes from our own culture and others around the world, as well as fun reading material.

Traveller children along with their parents and grandparents created this book in a series of creative workshops, with artists Orla Kenny, Dermot Seymour and Diarmuid Delargy.
