Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Every March 17th is St. Patrick's Day and for this reviewer it is special indeed, because it is also my birthday. All the trappings of what has become a pretty big day for fun in the U.S. are described (for young readers—so no green beer). The kids dress up wearing green and in this case they look a little bit like leprechauns. They hunt for four leaf clovers, dance an Irish jig and even have some Irish stew. The drink green juice and listen to some Irish music, sing songs, parade around and just generally have a good time. The little lass has bright red hair and a very jaunty manner. The text is fairly simple and not particularly exciting although the illustrations show plenty of activity and enthusiasm and are much stronger than the text. There is really nothing outstanding about this offering—it is just a pleasant early reader with a focus on a special holiday. A "Scholastic Reader" Level 1. 2004, Cartwheel/Scholastic, Ages 4 to 6.

I purchased several St. Patrick's Day books for my 2 year-old daughter. She loved this one because of the pictures as well as the repetitive nature throughout the book. It shares many of the activities people enjoy for St. Patrick's Day.

This is a wonderful book to read for your St. Patrick's Day Celebration. Appealing illustrations and just the right amount of text for those 3-4 years olds with a shorter attention span. Great introduction to the holiday. Can be tied to your classroom activities (turn your juice green, ask an Irish Step dancer to visit, etc.) Highly recommended!

This book is a good book for a beginning reader. The illustrations help the reader learn the story. The grandkids had fun with this, but I found it a bit boring.
