Na Gaidheil is an illustrated introduction to Scottish Gaelic for children, parents, teachers and adults who want to learn basic Gaelic words in a simple and easy to understand way. It may sometimes seem overwhelming to the beginner so this simple introduction gently introduces the reader to some basic words that they can build on in later books.
The magical illustrations will take you on a journey through the Gaelic fairy realm of the mystical country of Scotland and introduces the Gaels, (a family of Scottish fairies), their family and some of the Gaelic place names in Scotland. You will find unicorns, magic, enchantment and by using simple phonetics can learn Gaelic words to use around the home.
Full of hand drawn and painted illustrations and beautiful Scottish scenery, Na Gaidheil has been created to capture the magic of the Gaelic language.
