The Night Before St. Patrick's Day - Natasha Wing,Amy Wummer

I read this book to a group of first grade students during my first whole group lesson. The lesson I taught was character, setting, and plot and this book was perfect for the lesson. The students loved the book and the rhyming words and illustrations were very engaging and the students seemed to love it. I can use this book during the month of March to give the students examples and visuals of St. Patrick's Day.

How to Catch a Leprechaun
How to Catch a Leprechaun - Adam Wallace,Andy Elkerton

This book is about the many ways kids can try to catch a leprechaun. The children in the book come up with some great and crazy ideas from using a simple box to having a high tech security system. This very entertaining book keeps the students interested in the story and opens up many possibilities for fun projects. I would use this book around St. Patrick's Day and use it to read aloud to the students. One possible activity to do is to make our own leprechaun trap in the classroom.

How To Catch A Leprechaun
How to Catch a Leprechaun - Adam Wallace,Andy Elkerton

How to Catch a Leprechaun is a new book about a mischievous leprechaun! This book takes the reader down the road of mischief for the Leprechaun. The book would be so cute to do a read aloud with grades K-4th. There are so many activities and lessons that could go along with this book during the week of St. Patrick's Day. Since the book challenges children to make an invention to stop the Leprechaun, the students could be put into groups to make the invention.  Technology could be integrated into this lesson by having the older grades type out their invention, or they could write a narrate their own story about a leprechaun. This book could also be studied with sequencing. Overall, this is such a fun book! I recommend this book for all teachers.

ARC Review: How to catch a Leprechaun
How to Catch a Leprechaun - Adam Wallace,Andy Elkerton

We received this book to give an honest review.

LOVE, LOVE,LOVE this story of how to catch a leprechaun. 

I read this to both K and A at different times. A being three liked to find the leprechaun that was avoiding being captured and thought the pictures were cool.

K read this book to me and couldn't believe all the traps that the kids were putting in place. He thought it was funny when the leprechaun took care of the smelly shoes.  This book is a great story to read whenever but it is perfect for St. Patrick's Day . 

The pictures are bright and colorful and I think will keep the children engaged and laughing.

Great for St. Patrick's Day.
The Luckiest Leprechaun - Justine Korman Fontes,Denise Brunkus

This was the perfect read for St. Patrick's Day. The Luckiest Leprechaun is pretty grumpy he makes shoes for fairies in the park and if you get to close to his gold he will hit you with his hammer. One day when MacKenzie O'Shamrock also known as Mac wakes up to someone or something digging into his home he sees it is a dog named Lucky. Of course Mac doesn't like anyone to be around him but Lucky won't go away no matter what. In the end a human who believes in leprechaun's comes sniffing around and Lucky ends up chasing the person away. Now Mac of course wakes up and finds his gold is missing along with Lucky and he thinks that dog who was his only friend ran off with the gold. And of course Mac is furious but unknown to him Lucky didn't just take the gold he did it for a reason. And once Mac finds out why he realizes that Lucky is a good friend to have around and a loyal friend is worth more than gold. A great story about friendship, K thought the book was good and he liked the leprechaun.
