- Snugboro N.S. shadows at the library
They came, they read, they defended and they attacked. The fifth class boys and girls from St. Peter’s National School, Snugboro, had a most enjoyable morning at Castlebar library recently when they gathered to present their lively and interesting reviews of the books they had read as part of the Children’s Books Ireland shadowing scheme. They didn’t mince their words as they explained to their classmates which titles they had enjoyed, and which ones had not inspired.
The books that made a particularly good impression on the class included Spellbound (a collection of Irish myths and legends written by Siobhan Parkinson), The Weight of Water by Sarah Crossan (which won the Eilis Dillon award for first-time author) and Grounded by Sheena Wilkinson (which won the overall CBI Book of the Year award).
