Galway Fairytales are lighthearted Irish tales that can be used for entertainment.

Storytelling benefits children in so many ways: increases vocabulary, verbal reasoning, conceptual thinking, listening abilities, reasoning, concentration and helps to develop empathy.

Galway Fairytales goes a step or two further. In every story with our woodland animals or fairy characters, we have interwoven social topics. Topics that children experience every day, such as bullying, friendship, kindness, teamwork, finding your source of good guidance, persevering as a friend, owning up to wrongdoing, learning to respect others’ feelings, social inclusion, family breakups, and the most requested, coping with anxiety.

Children benefit from listening to these stories and discussing them afterwards using the discussion lists provided at the end of every story.

To increase the educational value of the books, we have added interesting facts about the main character or some aspect of the individual in the story. There are interesting facts about pigeons, badgers, squirrels, trees, owls, foxes, fairies, herbs, Irish gods and goddesses, and most importantly, techniques how to cope with anxiety.

With our books we want to provide children with the opportunity to enjoy learning. As adults, we want our children to learn and develop better life skills. After all, “what you learn as a child, stays with you a lifetime”.

Get 1 individual book, or get a compilation (5 books in 1 book) or get the whole series in a bundle.
Our Fairytales come in both E-Book & Paperback formats.
