About us

We all know how important reading is, and how important it is to find the 'right' book. We're all much more likely to read books that we really enjoy.

Sôn am Lyfra aims to provide bilingual reviews of Welsh language books for children and young people.

We hope that the website will help children, parents and teachers find the 'perfect' books.

Children Reading the Holy Bible

“The Welsh book world can be confusing, especially if you're a parent who doesn't speak Welsh. We hope that Sôn am Lyfra will help those who want to support their children's reading. ”

— Morgan Dafydd, former-teacher and founder

“All our reviews will be available in both English and Welsh because Wales is a bilingual country. There are so many great books being published in Wales, and we want to share these with you. "

— Llio Mai, Sôn am Lyfra
