Never Too Early

So you’re looking for a way to introduce the subject of early Ireland to your children…?

All parents face this problem. It’s never too soon to start the delicate, important conversation about where manuscripts come from.

I’ve found a bit of help: The Ink Garden of Brother Theophane by C.M. Millen, illustrated by Andrea Wisnewski. Charlesbridge, 2010.

It’s available on Amazon.
