A lovely illustrated short history of Ireland for younger readers, starting with prehistory and running up to (almost) the present day. Hits most of the highlights that you would expect in less than 100 pages, and I think does it in a way that would encourage kids to find out more and to relate to other things they knew about. A nice winner from my old friends at O'Brien Press. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0862788811, Hardcover)

We are going on a long, mysterious journey to find out what we can about the island of Ireland... The Story of Ireland begins 'After the Ice' and lasts 9,000 years. It tells the story of the whole island and its people. The book's 27 chapters chronicle invasions, wars, Christianity, famine and a divided island, mixed with tales of Celtic head hunters, mysterious stone tombs, the Vikings, the black death, life in castles, the Titanic tragedy, music, mobiles and computers. When it ends a new story is just beginning. With beautiful and humorous illustrations throughout, and visual jokes on each page, the history of Ireland is presented in an engaging and readable manner. The Story of Ireland recounts the entire history of Ireland from the ice age to the present day, ties in with the school curriculum, and is excellent for school projects - this is one book that no library or classroom should be without. Included in the International Youth Library's White Ravens 2008 collection.
