Erin Go Bragh!

St. Patrick’s day is around the corner and although I’m not Irish but I still like to celebrate the day.  Wearing green and having a green dinner is how I celebrate.  It’s usually still cold and gloomy so it’s a good chance to have some fun and cheer up.

Here are some books to share with the kids.

 St. Patrick’s Day by  Anne and Lizzy Rockwell

 The Rockwells do it again and explain St. Patrick’s day with a group of first graders and their teacher.  Cute drawings to go with the easy text.

There was as Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover by Lucille Colandro

The old lady is at it again and you can learn some St. Patrick’s day items to boot.  The drawings are crazy fun and the cadence of the text is familiar to all.

That’s What Leprechauns Do by Eve Bunting

 Three leprechauns start out their day determined not to get into any mischief …so, of course, they make mischief all the way.  I loved the drawings and the story.

St. Patrick’s Day Alphabet by Beverly Baris Vidrine

 Who  would have thought you could make a whole alphabet book about this holiday?  You will learn a lot about Irish culture when you pick up this book.

Now don’t forget to serve the kids green milk and green cookies on the 17th.  Until then, keep on reading!
