Thanks for joining us for another What to Read Wednesday! This week we're seeing green and sharing books and activities about St. Patrick's Day and at the end of the post is a link up where anything family friendly is welcome. I know you'll find some neat resources there as well.
From the folks who linked up last week the favorite post appeared to be the Free Homeschool Helps for Dr. Seuss Day! I hope you had a great time honoring him and celebrating literature on his birthday, March 1st.
Our Favorite St. Patrick's Day Books!
Even if you're not Catholic and not into the Saint thing or the legends of Leprechauns, there's still a lot to learn about the history of the man now known as St. Patrick, and about the traditions and holidays of the Irish. Here's a list of our favorite St. Patrick's Day picture books. Many of them you can find at your local library, or click on the pictures to order them from Amazon.com.
I Heard Good News Today (Chapter 7) by Cornelia Lehn (This is by far our favorite because each chapter is short enough to read in a few minutes and full of interesting history and trivia about people who have made an impact for the cause of Christ. It's great for any day!)
The Story of Saint Patrick's Day by Patricia A. Pingry (Ill. by Pamela R. Levy)
That's What Leprechauns Do by Eve Bunting (Ill. by Emily Arnold McCully)
St. Patrick's Day in the Morning by Eve Bunting (Ill. by Jan Brett)
The Night Before St. Patrick's Day by Natasha Wing (Ill. by Amy Wubber)
It's St. Patrick's Day, Scholastic Reader Level 1 by Rebecca Gomez (Ill. by Mary Morgan)
A Catered St. Patrick's Day (Mystery with Recipes) by Isis Crawford
And Now… It's Your Turn!
