The Night Before St. Patrick’s Day

We love reading all of The Night Before books! This is a fun book where 2 children set a trap to catch a leprechaun. To their delight, they end up catching one! Will they be able to find his pot of gold?


How to Catch a Leprechaun

This is such a fun rhyming book! The leprechaun creates tons of mischief in your house. Will you be able to catch him?


There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover!

I think we’ve read almost every There Was An Old Lady Books! This one is just as fun as the old lady swallows a clover, daisy, butterfly and other silly things. I love the repetition of these books as it gets children ‘reading’ and chanting along with each page.


The Luckiest St. Patrick’s Day Ever

This is such an adorable rhyming St. Patrick’s Day Book! Everyone is marching to the St. Patrick’s Day parade! Each page is full of bright and colorful illustrations. The story is fun and engaging. A must read for St. Patrick’s Day!


The Itsy Bitsy Leprechaun

The Itsy Bitsy Leprechaun is a fun twist on the nursery rhyme The Itsy Bitsy Spider. Down comes a rainbow and the little leprechaun begins his search for a lucky four leaf clover!


Ten Lucky Leprechauns

We absolutely LOVE the illustrations in this book. The leprechauns are so cute and each page is colorful and fun! This is a fun book for counting from one to ten and the leprechauns all find each other and the end of a rainbow.


Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Curious George

Curious George loves St. Patrick’s Day! He’s headed to the parade, but can he make it there without causing any trouble?


A Berry Lucky St. Patrick’s Day

I have loved Strawberry Shortcake since I was a kid! I love that these books are available for all different holidays and occasions! In this fun book, Strawberry Shortcake, her friends and the town are getting ready for the St Patrick’s Day parade and festival.

The illustrations in this story are so adorable! Jack Mouse visits his cousin in Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day. He learns all about leprechauns and tries to catch one.
