Just 1 month until St. Patrick’s Day! Whether you’re a teacher, a homeschooling parent, or a parent who loves to read your kids great books, this list of 25 St. Patrick’s Day books for kids will get your kids geared up for this luck o’ the Irish holiday.
Do you know why we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? St. Patrick, who’s birthname was Maewyn, was born in Roman Britain. As a youth he was kidnapped and sold into slavery in Ireland. He later escaped and fled to France where he converted to Christianity. He returned to Ireland in 432 A.D. as a missionary and made great efforts in converting the Druids at Tara. Patrick became a bishop, and after his death, was named Ireland’s patron saint.
It is said that Irish colonials who fought in America’s Revolutionary War were the first people to hold St. Patrick’s Day parades. St. Patrick’s Day became a way to connect Irish immigrants to their roots.
So last year we brought you 5 fun St. Patrick’s Day crafts for preschoolers. While we aren’t into coloring our milk green here at our house, we often love to gear up for holidays like St. Patrick’s Day with fun books. This fun list has a little bit of everything from history to fantasy, from the Patron Saint of Ireland to those lucky little leprechauns.
