On St. Patrick’s Day, Tucker thinks he is the unluckiest dog until he roles in a Leprechaun’s bed of four leaf clovers. His luck changes dramatically making him dream about the even better possibilities of what his luck will bring him next year.
It seems like this edition is a board book reprint of what was a preschool picture book. The board book format does not necessarily make this a story for toddlers; it still is a story that takes some attention from the reader to understand the context. T

This board book will be delightful for very young readers who have or love dogs. Tucker goes from having a bad day to a gloriously lucky day all because he rolled in some clover and met a leprechaun. If only life were so easy! The font is small, so this would have to be read to a child. There are no fuzzy patches or sound-makers, but it would make a sweet addition to a baby's board book collection, especially if there is a dog around the house.

A book for St Paddy's day. Would have to explain to my kids about the luck-related superstitious things from the west, eg black cat, waking up on the wrong side of the bed, four leave clover.

Little Tucker the West Highland terrier rolls in a leprechaun's field of four leaf clovers and enjoys a series of "lucky" adventures. Nicely illustrated with a short but fun tale.

Board book on a dog finding his luck on St. Patrick's day.

The best St. Patrick's book I've come across for reading aloud during story time. Tells the tale of a down-on-his-luck dog who has his day turned around around after rolling in a patch of 4 leaf clovers.

This is a cute story about Tucker the dog who thinks St. Patrick's day is going to be a bad day. Little did Tucker know that rolling in some four lead clovers could change it to his lucky day.

Cute St. Patrick's Day book for kids. While there is not much to it, it would work well for younger kids storytime.

2.5 stars. Definitly nothing but fluff, but could be fun for young children.
