This beginning chapter book explains, in story form, what a shamrock is and how it is different from a four-leaf clover. This would be good for classrooms learning about the traditions of St. Patrick's Day. It doesn't tell about the origins of the holiday, but is a fun way to teach about shamrocks and "being lucky".

I use this one for my St. Patrick's Day storytime every year, and find it to be a fun little read. As a result of this book, I now know to get actual shamrocks painted on my toenails in March and not four leaf clovers. :)

3.5 Stars This was a nice early reader about St. Patrick's Day. I got a little confused about 4 leaf clovers and Shamrocks and this book confused me more or I would have given it 4 stars. Still very festive!

Recommends it for: beginning readers and parents reading with them
This is a fascinating story about St. Patrick's Day and demonstrates the difference between the traditional shamrock and a four-leaf clover. It's a good book for beginning readers and, of course, perfect for reading for St. Patrick's Day. It's one of many books in the Robin Hill School series by Margaret McNamara and Mike Gordon. We enjoyed reading this book together.
