S is for Shamrock: An Ireland Alphabet
by Eve Bunting
Small in size (less than 400 by 200 miles) the country of Ireland holds a big place in world and human history. And many from around the globe proudly lay claim to ancestral ties there. S is for Shamrock: An Ireland Alphabet gives readers a guided A-Z tour of this small island country whose influence extends far beyond its sea borders. Famous landmarks such as the Blarney Stone and Finn McCool's Giant Causeway speak to the land and history that shaped Ireland and its inhabitants. The prose and poetry of Eve Bunting, Irish native and children's book author, bring the magic and mystery, character and culture of the Emerald Isle to vivid life.To find recipes, games, interactives maps and much more for this title visit www.discovertheworldbooks.com!
