Reading the Rising for Children
Reading the Rising for Children (pdf file)
Reading historical fiction is an excellent way for young people to find out about the past. This collection of books specifically chosen for children and teenagers will introduce them to and immerse them in one of one of the most important events to ever happen in our country’s history, the Easter Rising of 1916.
Reading the Rising for Children was developed as part
of Clare County Library’s commitment to placing children and young
people at the centre of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme. We are
delighted to offer a selection of books covering the events that took
place one hundred years go reflecting the run up to the Easter Rising
and what happened during the Rebellion. Historical fiction is the perfect
way for young people to identify with children of the same age from
times past. It gives them a real understanding of what life was like
during times of major historical significance.
