Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Ireland is rich in history, legends, and symbolic reminders of the country's early Celtic roots. Combining all three elements into one series of easy-to-remember poems, this alphabet book allows young readers to explore this magical realm from A to Z.

From the banshee's cry and the leprechaun's pot of gold to the Rock of Dunamase and Kilkenny Castle, each entry provides an educational and entertaining overview of Irish culture. Along with beautiful illustrations, this alphabetic adventure includes lyrics to a traditional Irish song, a glossary of terms, and a list of Ireland's thirty-two counties.

Rickey E. Pittman, storyteller, author, and guitarist/singer, presents his sto-ries, music, and programs at Celtic festivals through-out the South. He was the grand prize winner of the 1998 Ernest Hemingway Short Story Competition. A freelance editor and writer, Pittman worked closely with regional Louisiana arts councils to write historical plays for three parishes. He is also the author of four other books with Pelican, including Scottish Alphabet, his first collaboration with Connie McLennan. Pittman resides in Monroe, Louisiana.

Connie McLennan is a member of the Northwest Air Force Artists and the Picture Book Artists Association. She graduated from California State University, Sacramento with a BA in journalism and a minor in art and later majored in illustration at the Acade-my of Art University in San Francisco. McLennan lives with her husband in Rocklin, California, where she works as a freelance illustrator and gallery painter.

My husband is from Ireland, so I like to buy little things for our son to introduce his Irish heritage. This book was one of those purchases. It's very cute, well written, and easy to read. The illustrations are very nice, although sometimes I wish it were a little more colorful for the child's point of view. My husband, who is often not impressed by books claiming to be Irish, he felt this book was the "real deal." I would gladly purchase the book again and my 2 year old likes it. I hope it's a book he'll continue to grow attached to.

Irish Alphabet by Rickey E. Pittman and illustrated by Connie McLennan has just been published by The Pelican Press It is not, as one would expect, an alphabet of Irish Gaelic, but instead, a compendium of cultural information about Ireland for children. A, for example is for the Aran Islands, C for the Celtic Cross, J for James Joyce, and so forth. The cultural tidbits are recounted in light verse that will appeal to young readers, and he colorful illustrations capture the beauty of Ireland. This would be a great St Patrick's Day gift to introduce kids to the magic of Ireland.

Letters of the alphabet are represented well by landmarks, personalities, and activities found in Ireland.
A good memory of Ireland and a good teaching book to show children facts about Ireland.
