And some great news! To get the holidays off to a lucky start, the good folks at Eire's Kids are sponsoring a giveaway for readers of Irish American Mom.
But before I share the details of the giveaway, let me first introduce you to the lovely children's books written and produced by Derek Mulveen and Michelle Melville of Eire's Kids.
Oisín The Brave:
Oisín The Brave is the adventurous hero in a series of new Irish contemporary children's books by Derek and Michelle from County Galway, Ireland.
These wonderfully imaginative stories take Oisín (pronounced Ush-een) on different journeys of discovery. The exciting and beautifully illustrated characters will spark kids' imaginations.
These book are aimed at young children between the ages of 2 and 7 years old.
The stories are intertwined with a few Gaelic words which is a fun way to introduce children and adults to the Irish language.
Oisín the Brave - Robot Island.
"Hurry Orane, HURRY! It's ...... ITS AN ADVENTURE!!!!
Follow Oisín the Brave and Orane the Dragon through the Dolmen of Time on an adventure that takes them travelling across many seas, meeting strange creatures and help a little robot on a quest to find the GOLDEN KEY and save Robot Island ......
Before time runs out.

My favorite gift as a child was I got this big pink Teddy bear one Christmas ! I remember waking up and seeing the bear and I was so excited ! I’m 55 years old now living in the USA for 29 years, and I still have that Teddy bear even though it’s very worn! This year I became a grandma for the first time and I would love this gift for my grandson whom I will pass onto my wonderful Irish ☘️ heritage!
We what a fun giveaway. As a kid my favorite gift was a Nintendo (NES) and a stuffed polar bear my mother stitched my name on to.
