A great book to enjoy while you share your snack is Hooray for St. Patrick’s Day by Joan Holub. This book is probably best geared for 2-5 year olds. It would be great for kids who don’t have a lot of background knowledge of St. Patrick’s Day. The rhyming text explains some fun St. Patrick’s Day and Spring activities like parades and picnics. The children in the story also make St. Patrick’s Day crafts and do a play about St. Pat’s. This story opens up to a lot of extensions. It is a lift the flap book which is great for young kids. The illustrations are cute and feature children of various ethnic backgrounds.
