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
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!)
