St. Patrick's Day Books for Kids (Ages: 3-10)

15+ books for kids ages 3-10 about leprechauns, St. Patrick's Day and being lucky.
One year when I was about 9 or 10, I decided not to wear any green on St. Patrick's Day.  The truth is, my eyes are green and I wanted to play a trick on my friends so that when they pinched me for not wearing green, I could turn around and pinch them back 10 times.  (That's the rule, isn't it?)  I remember other years trying to be sneaky about where I placed my item of green: underwear, socks, a hair elastic, a bracelet or earrings.  Now that I'm older, I still think it's fun to celebrate this tradition of wearing green on St. Patrick's Day and my kids have loved it the last couple of years as well now that they are old enough to correlate green with the holiday.  And ever since having kids, I try to find a book or two that goes along with the holiday that we're celebrating, including the one about leprechauns and pots of gold.

With St. Patrick's Day coming up next week, I thought it would be fun to gather a list of children's books about the holiday.  I remember some of these books from when I was in elementary school and I know my kids will love them too.  I've included a direct link to the book as well as the age range that is suggested for each book.  I hope you'll be "lucky" enough to find a book or two to help celebrate this fun holiday! *wink*

  6. So many cute books! I checked our local library about a week ago for St. Patrick's Day books and was really disappointed by the lack of holiday books.

    1. Really? You'd think a library would be an easy place to find holiday books. Or maybe they all got checked out.
