Book profits go to Battens charity


HALF the profits from the sales of a newly-launched children's interactive book are to be donated to Bee for Battens: The Saoirse Foundation.

'Bee the Book: Farm Friends', written by Tralee woman Debora Tobin and illustrated by Bernadette O'Neill, takes an innovative and interactive approach to provide an enjoyable learning experience both for the performer/reader and children.

Critics have been raving about the 100 per cent Irish produced book which uses rhyming text and clear, beautifully-presented illustrations and introduces children to farm animals, including the titular been horse, duck, sheep, pig and cow. Both the text and illustrations help in learning about farm animals, what they look like, what they eat and the sounds they make.

Younger children, from the age of two onwards, will enjoy having the book read to them, while older children up to sevenyears-old will want to ' bee' the reader themselves.

Bee the Book: Farm Animals is available to order priced at €10 from
