Perhaps it is because I am far from the land of my childhood, but I fear my little Mairead (aged 3) is missing out on the Scottish Celtic culture that I was often exposed to as a child. As such, I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations for books or videos that would have my daughter increase her familiarity with Scots and Irish names, places, etc.

I am really impressed with how the Dora tv/book series incorporates Spanish words and motifs, but, obviously, I am more interested in a Celtic themed series. Any suggestions out there?

Thanks,
Rory

Yikes, so we have no Celtic media for our kids. How does this work in a media based society? Are we interested in raising our kids in somewhat of a Celtic culture with an awareness of a Celtic identity?

Sorry I can't be of help to you. Have you tried doing a search on Amazon or a site of that nature? Surely there is something available out there.

And leave all infamy,
Then we shall come to happiness
And blisses more than we can guess in Jesu's company."

Some good books to share with children (all are available on Amazon.com - I checked) are Classic Celtic Fairy Tales by John Matthews and Ian Daniel; One-Hundred-and-One Celtic Read-Aloud Myths & Legends by Joan C. Verniero; Helen from Scotland (a paper doll book) by Kathy Allert, Always Room for One More ( A Caldecott Medal winner) by Sorche Nic Leodhas, and an old one is Festivals in Scotland (Scothe Books-Children's Activity Book Series) by Frances Jarvie, Fhiona Galloway. Hope this is helpful! king.gif
