"Mol an óige agus tiocfaidh siad" is a well-loved phrase in the Irish language which can be translated as "Praise the young and they will improve". Encouraging a child to love books and read is the greatest gift you can give them. You can find books here for children of all ages, from early readers to young adults.
We have a huge variety of books on kennys.ie, to help you find that subject or author your child will want to learn all about. We have fantasy and fairytales for day-dreamers, science and nature books for fact finders, ghost stories for your little terrors or mysteries and crime for serious sleuths. We have all the most talked-about authors in the school-yard including Jacqueline Wilson, Jeff Kinney, J.K.

We agree with Walt Disney when he said that the "Our greatest natural resource is the minds of our children". We have also heard it said that you should "always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your nursing home". So, irrespective of your motive, buying a book for a child is a worthwhile investment.
