The short informational book, “St. Patrick’s Day” is a good resource to keep in the classroom. This story explains many aspects of the holiday, such as its history, traditions, and symbols. Also, many questions children have about this holiday are answered, specifically speaking, “Why do we wear green on St. Patrick’s Day?” The pictures in this story are useful for children since some of them are real photographs. Readers can see the real life parades that have taken place and/or parties that include dancing and singing to Irish music. Another useful tool I liked was the short glossary in the back. It defined St. Patrick’s Day theme words, such as leprechaun and shamrock, for readers who are not already aware of them. Finally, the writing in this book is in simple, small sentences for young children to read and understand. One example of this is, “He was a preacher.” I think the main idea of this story is to inform readers of the holiday, St. Patrick’s Day. ( )
