I liked this book for a few reasons. For one, I liked the illustrations because they supported the text. For example, there were illustrations of maps and different cities that were described in the text. This helps readers to connect where the cities are in comparison to where they live. Also, I liked the language because it was descriptive. The story described the history of St. Patrick’s Day, which would allow a reader who did not have much knowledge about St. Patrick’s Day to gain a better insight; I even learned some history about the holiday that I did not know about before. While I liked the concept of the story and its historical information about St. Patrick’s Day, I think it should be used in a fourth or fifth grade class rather than a second grade class. For example, the text talks about death and that “they say that people fed Patrick poison but he did not die.” I think this writing would not be appropriate in a second grade class. There is no major message of St. Patrick’s Day but it does explain part of the history of the holiday and how the Irish celebrate it even if they live in another country other than Ireland. ( )
