The brain is our most important organ and perhaps the least well understood. It’s the command station for our bodycontrolling what we think, what we feel and what we do. This colouring book seeks to increase our understanding of the brain in a succinct engaging way using text, images, brain maps and cartoons. It will give second-level pupils and adults alike an insight into how the brain works and into its central role together with the nervous system in directing how our whole body operates. Colouring books are increasingly popular today and used widely in the development of mindfulness and well-being. This book will be a welcome Irish language resource in these areas.

Only babies wear nappies, right! Bláithín and Oisín are growing up quickly and are looking forward to saying goodbye for good to nappies and using a potty for the first time. Both these stories convey the fun that can be had when learning something new and how a little encouragement and support can reap wonders. A set of stickers illustrated by Sheena Dempsey accompany each book.

An Saor Cloiche Míshona

Scéal béaloidis ón tSeapáin. Seanscéal simplí é seo a bhaineann le traidisiún béil na Seapáine. Saor cloiche is ea é Haru. Bhí sé sona sásta go dtí gur thosaigh sé ag santú na rudaí a bhí ag daoine eile. Ach má tháinig an saibhreas d’imigh an sonas. 

An Pota Folamh

Seanscéal simplí é seo a bhaineann le traidisiún béil na Síne. Is buachaill óg macánta é Cheng. Níl gach duine eile chomh macánta céanna leisean, áfach, ach sin an rud a aithníonn Impire na Síne é féin.

Éamonn Ó Ruanaí a scríobh

Kieron Black a mhaisigh

Rógaire gan sárú é Anansi na n-ocht gcos. Is nós leis bob a bhualadh ar na déithe agus olc a chur ar a chomharsana. Ach taobh amuigh de sin níl sé ródhifriúil liomsa ná leatsa, i ndáiríre. Is breá le Anansi bheith ag comhrá leis na hainmhithe eile (nuair nach mbíonn sé á n-ithe). Is breá leis scéalta agus scéalaíocht. Ach bí ar d’aire, is breá leis bheith i mbun cleasaíochta freisin!

Tá cur síos ar naoi gcinn d’eachtraí iomráiteacha Anansi sa leabhar seo ó pheann Éamoinn Uí Ruanaí.
