CRRL Kids: Saint Patrick's Day
Annotation:Clearly illustrated, step-by-step instructions result in great craft projects for beginners with everyday supplies. Some of the crafts include a Candy Box Shamrock, a Leprechaun Face Mask, a Rainbow Bracelet, & a Pot of Gold Table Decoration.
Annotation:When the family’s potato crop fails in Ireland, Mary’s family comes to America. Like many Irish immigrants they look forward to the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. Mary wants to be a special part of the celebration and begins her search for a perfect shamrock in the city, in winter – impossible! A picture book.
Annotation:This book relies on facts instead of legends in retelling the saint's life. Even so, there is plenty to interest readers and listeners as young Patrick is kidnapped by pirates and sold into slavery before following his vision of converting Ireland to Christianity.
Annotation:"A is for accordion, the Irish squeezebox used to play dance music on St. Patrick's Day..." "B is bodhran (BOW-rawn), the flat, one-sided Irish drum..." Learn a lot about Irish celebrations in this delightful picture book.
Annotation:Count along with the forest friends in this shimmery board book! Five bright green holographic shamrock tabs and fun rhyming text make this a St. Patrick's Day treat!
Annotation:Shannon so wants to win the Saint Patrick's Day stepdancing contest, but her shoes and dress are old, and when disaster strikes, what's she to do? Perhaps call on a leprechaun?

Who was St. Patrick and why does he have a day named after him? How do we celebrate it? Some of these books will answer these questions and some will make you feel lucky to know the Irish in story and legend. And that’s no blarney!
