Funny, touching, and true, this beautifully illustrated volume collects more than 100 Irish folk sayings celebrating the bond between parent and child. An intimate treasury of Old Country advice and observation, Irish Wisdom for Parents embraces the joys, and the trials, of raising and loving children. Proverbs wry (Better good manners than good looks), whimsical (Little pigs have big ears), and wise (You can't put an old head on young shoulders) charmingly capture the warmth and wit of Irish culture. Magical illustrations by Mandy Pritty make Irish Wisdom for Parents a lovely keepsake and the perfect gift for showers and other special occasions.
