Our Wee Place
Could there be a more enchanting land to inspire a child’s imagination than Northern Ireland? Imagine playing in an ancient castle atop towering cliffs, feeling the spray of vast plunging waterfalls, boating through atmospheric caves, treading scary rope bridges, following endless giant steps into the sea…
Who doesn’t remember those magical adventures around our spectacular landscape with mum and dad, or recreating them with your own children?
How much fun would it be if your children could see those adventures, beautifully illustrated, in a book about their own, special place?
Now they can. ‘Our Wee Place’ follows the adventures of a little girl, Emily, and her Granda across Northern Ireland. Commissioned by the Northern Ireland Office (NIO) as part of the ‘Our Story in the Making’ programme, the recently published book is being offered to every child who started P1 in 2021 as well as being placed in Sure Start centres and libraries across Northern Ireland.
