Children's Book Review: The Wild Atlantic Way by Natasha Mac a’Bháird
With summer school holidays approaching we were thrilled to receive a copy of the new My Ireland Activity Book; The Wild Atlantic Way written by Natasha Mac a’Bháird and illustrated by Alan Nolan. The same team previously published the My Ireland Activity Book; The Cliffs of Moher and The Burren. The Book Blurb Reads: Puzzles, games, colouring and tons of interesting facts about the Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland's amazing coastal trail. Sasha Seal guides the reader through crosswords, matching games, mazes, wordsearches and stories, encouraging young readers to explore what Ireland's spectacular Atlantic coast has to offer.
On the first page we meet Sasha Seal and her friend Gulliver Gull who promise to be our guides as we make our way through the many pages of activities each corresponding with an exciting location along the Wild Atlantic Way.
There's a great mix of different activities in the book including; a diary, pictures to colour, word puzzles, drawing challenges and a short story. Every page is also littered with relevant facts and our good friend Larry The Leprechaun even makes an appearance! This book is a wonderful way for children to learn about The Wild Atlantic Way, especially if you plan on travelling Ireland's West Coast this Summer. For €7.99 you get 24 pages of good quality entertainment for your child with plenty of educational benefits too. We hope they'll be releasing an activity book for Ireland's Ancient East next!
The Wild Atlantic Way is available in bookstores across Ireland now for€7.99. Published by The O'Brien Press, you can find out more about the book on their website here. We think this book would be best suited to children aged between 6 and 10 years of age.
Thank you to the O'Brien Press for sending us this book to review!
