Toddlers-Picture Story Books
Peata Ruadh, the Gaelic for sea bird with a colourful beak, is about a Scottish puffin and how he wants to rush nature to get his colourful beak. Peata explores some very imaginative solutions to his impatience. His Grandpa gently tries to explain that nature cannot be rushed, while teaching Peata Ruadh the real life process. The story deliberately uses examples of rich vocabulary, similes, metaphors and onomatopoeia to help support language development. Peata Ruadh can be enjoyed as a read alone book or equally as a read out loud book. It can also be used as a tool to teach literacy.
