Book Review: Celtic Mythology for Kids

Celtic Mythology for Kids by Christopher Pinard
Celtic Mythology for Kids: Tales of Selkies, Giants, and the Sea
by Christopher Pinard

5 out of 5 stars

I love these fairy tales from Celtic myths! They are retold in a simple manner for children, and each tale is between 3-7 pages long. The tales use a few Irish and Scottish words, but they are explained and there is even a glossary of Celtic words in the back of the book. I love how the rich Celtic culture is celebrated in this book!

The stories themselves are wonderfully interesting and full of magic and history! At the end of each story, there are some questions to prompt discussion and get the reader thinking about the choices made by the characters in the story.
Each story has a full-page illustration in bright colors. The artwork has bold lines and an energetic style similar to the cover. I love how the art enhances each story, and conjures up fantasy images of olden days when fairies and giants roamed the earth.

I enjoyed this book so much! It would be perfect to read aloud to a child and share the stories, and then answer the discussion questions together.

  1. I’m definitely too old for this particular book, but I’d like to learn about more world mythologies, including Celtic. I know a lot about Greek mythology but that’s about it. 😛
