In this second book the user has been provided with an even more varied range of enjoyable action rhymes, songs, and games. This comprehensive selection includes: number rhymes; circle games; songs for festivals and celebrations; rhymes for pastimes and mealtimes; nature rhymes; lullabies; and traditional Irish folk songs. The book is designed to accompany the child as they experience the world around them. One does not need to be an Irish speaker to use this resource and, as with Bróga Nua, all the rhymes and songs can be listened to on the accompanying CDs. The philosophy that inspires this series continues to be based on a firm belief that children instinctively love rhymes and songs. Rhymes and songs make children happy and lead to a fun interactive experience between parent and child. They also incorporate all the ingredients for an unconsciously educational experience. They aid memory and help the child develop valuable language sounds, alliterative phrases, rhythms, patterns and structures. Singing songs and reciting rhymes lay the foundation for language ability and promote and enhance literacy skills. Children play with the short texts of Irish rhymes and discover, in a stimulating and enjoyable way, the mechanics of the language.
