The phrasebook provides Irish phrases and vocabulary needed for typical exchanges between parents and children. It is intended for parents who wish to speak a little Irish to their young children, and may be used by individuals or in a class situation. First it presents the phrases for calling children, attracting their attention, praising them, warning them, asking what they want, and so on. Then it addresses the situations that arise in a normal day: getting up; having meals; going to school; shopping; going out in the car; gardening; household chores; bedtime; medical matters; accidents; special occasions; and playing games. Lyrics to several children's songs and a list of vocabulary, with pictures, are included. (MSE)
