Very interesting, says my 13 year old. This is a good introduction or supplement to St. Patricks Day, and the events that surround it as school children each take turns in their own way to tell a different part of why we celebrate this holiday.

A classroom of students spends time learning about St. Patrick's Day traditions in this picture book for lower elementary. It's one of the best books about this holiday for reading aloud that I've come across.

This book is about a class celebrating St. Patricks Day. They wear green, make a book, perform a play, and just learn about Ireland. This book is a great culture lesson on the history and meaning of St. Patrick’s Day. It would be a great book to read on this holiday.

This book very lightly introduces some of the history, symbols, and traditions behind St. Patrick's Day. By the end of the book, I wanted to go get a book that would give me more details and depth. Would be good for preschoolers.

This is a children's book about classroom activites surrounding St. Patrick's Day. It's okay, not as entertaining as others I've read lately.
