Madainn Mhath!/Oidhche Mhath!

The first LGBTQ+ children’s book written in Scottish Gaelic – supported by the Scottish Gaelic Books Council

In Madainn Mhath! A young boy is awake before his mums and sister. It’s too early to make a sound…but what’s that noise?! Two rumbling tummies need to be fed! The boy and his cat have fun starting their day – all by themselves. 

In Oidhche Mhath! A young girl is trying to get ready for bed, but her puppy thinks it’s time to play. Tired of being ignored, the puppy steals her teddy bear. Under the table, over the chair, her dads give chase and try to rescue bear. It seems puppy is getting to play after all!
