Review
“...it is ideal for learners in the early stages of learning and would provide a good motivational exercise for children who are learning Gaelic... Audio of the text is available - in good, clear Gaelic - free of charge on the publisher's website. Learning Gaelic should be fun, and this small, attractive book fits that bill.”
published in Cothrom (for learners, supporters and speakers of Scots Gaelic), winter edition 2011
