  • Mind Yourself – the Mental Health and Wellbeing Reading Guide

    2.50

    The Covid-19 pandemic is a considerable source of worry for children and families, and young people are having to cope with big changes at home and at school. In response, Children’s Books Ireland, in partnership with Jigsaw and ISPCC Childline, has created Mind Yourself – the Mental Health and Wellbeing Reading Guide.

    Featuring cover artwork by illustrator Tarsila Krüse, The Mind Yourself reading guide is a resource that can be used by adults – parents, guardians, caregivers, teachers – to support and educate young people in relation to mental health and wellbeing. The guide contains reviews and recommendations of over 400 books for children and young people from birth to age eighteen and is designed as a ‘first-aid kit’ for worries, sadness, loneliness, anxiety and any number of feelings that a young person may want to explore. Mind Yourself also contains mental health and wellbeing information from Jigsaw and ISPCC Childline, including tips and coping strategies for young people and advice for adults on supporting children to build resilience.

    Elaina Ryan, CEO of Children’s Books Ireland, said:
    Mind Yourself was born in a pandemic and is published during an unprecedented time as children and young people return to school following a period of isolation. We want to recognise the very valid feelings that may arise during this time and to provide support for adults who may need a way to start a difficult conversation with a younger person, perhaps by reading a story aloud with them, by leaving a book on their bed with a note or by giving them this guide with a book token to find their own way through it. As always, we want our guides to enable children and young people – with the help of a family member, carer, teacher or librarian – to find the right book for them at a particular time, and if they’re struggling, to tóg sos le scéal or lighten the load with a book.

  • Recommended Reads 2019

    2.50

    In September each year, Children’s Books Ireland launches our annual reading guide. Through this guide, we recommend the best books in all genres and age groups, enabling children and young people – with the help of a parent, guardian, grandparent, teacher or librarian – to find the right book for them.

    Within this guide you’ll discover over 340 of the best books out this year, recommended for young readers by our expert reviewers. Each title has a ‘read also’ attached, so if you find a book you like, you will hopefully like the other recommended title too. In total, that’s almost 700 brilliant books to read. The guide is arranged in sections, firstly by age, starting with the babies’ section, moving all the way up to young adult, followed by the poetry, non-fiction and our themed section, which flows from young to older. Books from an Irish author, illustrator or publisher or in the Irish language are highlighted with a shamrock.

    This year in the reading guide we’ve included a specially curated section on the theme of the environment – protecting it, celebrating it and embracing it. Our cover artist for 2019 is illustrator Peter Donnelly.
