Bradan Press at Scotland Trade Fair

Bradan Press at Scotland Trade Fair

Bradan Press had the opportunity to be an exhibitor at this year's spring Scotland Trade Fair! Last week, from Sunday until Tuesday, we were vending and showcasing our books to customers at SEC in Glasgow. We always love seeing you in person, so it was delightful to...

While we are almost out of February, Winter isn't quite done in Nova Scotia yet! One way that you can pass the time is with our adult colouring book, Fàilte! Fàilte is written by Gayle Weatherson and offers a wealth of Gaelic phrases and traditional proverbs, intricately decorated with flowers, foliage, birds, and beasts, and ready to colour. 

📚 You can view this book along with our others at bradanpress.com.

This week's word is... Leugh | Read! This word is very fitting for us and we use it often. If you want to leugh/read some Gaelic, our website is open 24/7 with everything from children's stories to poetry in Scottish and Irish Gaelic!

Because hearing Gaelic is also as important as reading it, you can learn how to pronounce leugh through the link in the comments via Am Faclair Beag.

Today is Là nam Pòg! / Valentine's Day! The word of the day is Mo ghaol or My love; try it out today with your loved ones! You can also find more in today's blog post at bradanpress.com or through the link in the comments.

Happy Valentine's Day! ❤️
Teachers don't forget! We have French versions for two of our books; G is for Gael and for Fionn MacCool and the Salmon of Knowledge. Both these books showcase Gaelic culture in a grade-appropriate level. 

G is for Gaël (G is for Gael) is a first step for children and adults who wish to discover and understand Gaelic history, culture and identity in Nova Scotia. Through joyful illustrations and creative concepts, readers will explore and celebrate Gaelic identity. This booklet is intended for children, teachers, parents, grandparents and anyone else who wants to learn more about Gaelic language and culture in Nova Scotia.
📚
Fionn MacCool et le saumon de la sagesse (Fionn MacCool and the Salmon of Knowledge)  is the tale of the great Gaelic hero Fionn MacCool and why he sucks his thumb. It is also the story of the Salmon of Knowledge on the Nova Scotia Gaelic flag. This tale is retold as a participation story with gestures corresponding to nine action words, making it perfect for reading aloud.
Nova Scotians are pretty sick of snow right now but we still want to share a word for the upcoming week: sneachd! Which means Snow. If you live in Nova Scotia then you might want to practice before our snowstorm on Tuesday and Wednesday ❄️☃️

You can hear how to pronounce this word through the link in the comments via Am Faclair Beag. If you want more Gaelic words, poetry, or stories you can always visit our website at bradanpress.com!
Everyone at Bradan Press wants to wish you a happy World Read Aloud Day! We have always known it is important to share stories orally as well as through text; so we encourage you to read aloud to your classroom, children, or family today to celebrate. You can also celebrate by taking a look at our YouTube page where we have read-aloud versions of our books (linked in the comments)!

Beannachdan na Féille Brìghde oirbh uile! // Happy Saint Brigid's Day to you all! 

St Brigid (c 451-525) is one of three national saints of Ireland, alongside St Patrick and St Columba. She is believed to have been born in Foughart near Dundalk in County Louth and according to folklore she was an abbess who founded several convents, including one in Kildare which was built on the site of a pagan shrine to the Celtic goddess of the same name. 

St Brigid is also credited with establishing a school of art, which included the teaching of metalwork and illumination. She is the patron saint of many things including poetry, learning, healing, and protection. 

The saint is remembered on her feast day by the tradition of making St Brigid’s crosses from rushes. The cross usually has four arms, each tied at the ends, and a woven square in the middle. These are place over doorways and windows to protect the home from any kind of harm.

Robert Burns poem in English and Scots

Ha! whaur ye gaun, ye crowlin ferlie?
Your impudence protects you sairly;
I canna say but ye strunt rarely,
Owre gauze and lace;
Tho’, faith! I fear ye dine but sparely
On sic a place …

Happy Burns Night from Bradan Press! Celebrate poetry with some Robbie Burns tonight. This poem, To a Louse, was written in 1786 in Burn's favourite meter, Standard Habbie.

We'll see you this Saturday, November 25 at the Merry Witchmas Fair! 🌲⭐️🧙‍♀️🌜

Chester Legion, 14 Union St Chester NS. 10 am-4pm. "We have a full house of vendors this year. Some familiar faces and some new ones!. We will also have our Witchin' Kitchen so that you can enjoy lunch with us. See you there!"

BTW, some sad individual in Chester, NS is apparently STILL disturbed that witches are holding a holiday fair and calling it what it is. They keep tearing down the poster, just like last year. But the Chester Legion is supportive and the event will be fun & fab! Looking forward to it! 🌟

Tickets are 5 pounds and are available through the Push the Boat out website.
