Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
With a brief history of the saint and the introduction of the Irish celebration into America, the reader becomes acquainted with Irish culture. The theme is carried out with information on favorite foods, the shamrock, leprechauns, and parades. Capsules tell further facts, such as: "Green is the national color of Ireland." An unusual story is told about dyeing the Chicago River green. Directions are given for making a leprechaun trap. Clear, brightly colored photographs, large print, simple vocabulary, and green chapter titles invite children into the text. There is a table of contents, glossary with pronunciation guide, lists for further reading, Web sites, and an index. Part of the "First Facts" series and "Holidays and Culture" extension, this is a resource for libraries for children.
