Well color this bookworm green, rainbow, & gold, because I couldn’t be more excited about this week’s What to Read Wednesday theme: Saint Patrick’s Day!
None in our household are more than perhaps the tiniest fraction Irish, but come March 17th every year we pretend to be… after all, Saint Patrick wasn’t genetically Irish, either! Besides, I’m aiming to raise globally-minded kiddos who love learning about and celebrating different cultures.
Our very favorite Saint Patrick’s Day book is the following: Patrick, Patron Saint of Ireland by Tomie dePaola. It focuses more on the true story of the upright Christian martyr than popular folklore, detailing his enslavement and subsequent ministry to the Emerald Isle.
Of course my family does still appreciate a fair helping of folklore, as well. Here are a few additional St. Patty’s Day faves from our casa:
