Irish You'd Read These Books

It's not possible St. Patrick could have imagined how, 1600 years in the future, millions of schoolchildren would chase each other around, pinching anyone not wearing an article of green clothing. Yet here we are....and in keeping with that and many other great St. Patrick's Day celebrations, here's a quick roundup of green, Irish, and Leprechaun-laden books. Enjoy!


The Night Before St. Patrick's Day by Natasha Wing


Jack and the Leprechaun by Ivan Robertson


A Fine St. Patrick's Day by Susan Wojciechowski


The Luckiest St. Patrick's Day Ever by Teddy Slater. We're proud to note that this book was illustrated by our very own Ethan Long. He helped create Chick-Chick the Ping-Pong Champ, one of the sillier books from the new Hooked on Phonics Learn to Read program.
