Hi everyone! It’s Jennifer again, and I am back today to share with you some of my favorite books to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. As you know, children’s books are a huge passion of mine. And holiday books are even more fun, because you can find something for everyone!
I have to say, St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday that goes overlooked when it comes to kids. Most people tend to concentrate on Easter as soon as Valentine’s Day is over. What a mistake! St. Patrick’s Day books are fun and informational.
And I am not being partial just because I have bit of Irish in my blood. Let’s face it, they are so much fun!
Chapter/Board Books To Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day:
- Good Luck!: A St. Patrick’s Day Story (Ant Hill)
- The Story of Saint Patrick’s Day
- Magic Tree House #43: Leprechaun in Late Winter (A Stepping Stone Book(TM))
- Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Curious George tabbed board book
- The Leprechaun’s Big Pot of Gold
I love how much fun the early readers are for holidays. They encourage group and independent reading, something every kids should know, and want to know, how to do. Plus, they make great conversation starters!
Of course, there are some books out there for older readers. These picture books are both fact and fiction, and the photos are sure to draw in readers of all levels.
