K-Gr 4-St Patrick's Day in the Morning, written by Eve Bunting and illustrated by Jan Brett (HM, 1980), is a warm and lively tale set in a village in Ireland on St. Patrick's Day. The main character, Jamie, is the youngest in his family, too small to participate in the annual special parade. Disappointed, Jamie awakens early and sets out to prove them wrong. The story that follows is his march through the village, making music and creating a parade on his own, proving to himself that he is truly big enough to participate. The narration is done with an authentic Irish accent, and there is music. Listeners can view the illustrations of the Irish village while listening to the voice and music of Ireland. This is an excellent purchase for schools in need of book/tape materials. It is one of very few good St. Patrick's Day stories. A bonus in this case is the glimpse of Irish culture and way of life. Listeners should be able to see the illustrations while listening to the tape.-Jane Enfield, Howe Community School, Minneapolis, MN Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
