It’ll Be Irie Review


It’ll Be Irie

Donn Swaby

Donn Swaby brings us an endearing tale about immigrating to a new country and staying true to yourself in the children’s book It’ll Be Irie!  Raymond’s family has recently moved to America from Jamaica, but he soon starts missing home as he struggles to fit in with a new culture while remaining true to his own.  Swaby unwraps the tale beautifully, making it fun, meaningful, and ending with a great message about accepting others and yourself!  The story is wonderfully complimented with illustrator Alejandra Barajas’ fun and colorful art style.  This is a great children’s story about acceptance, kindness, and self esteem that is perfect for all ages!
