It is a perfect way to help explain the holiday to a young child.

Let me start by saying we are Irish. We have on the average about 25-30 people at our house every St. Patrick's Day. The entire house is decorated, inside and out. We decorate a tree, every year, and the leprechauns leaves presents under it for the grand kids. We do garland, and a village, lots of balloons, pictures, lights, and even a hidden pot of gold (gold wrapped chocolate candies.) We always felt it was important to celebrate, our heritage, with our children, and friends, so this all started years ago, when my 4 kids were little. Now it has become even bigger and better, and being carried on with the next generation. I cook on the average about 25 pounds of corned beef and cabbage, with all the trimmings for the day. And of course the Green beer and green punch flows endlessly. Curious George, has always been a favorite for us and the grand kids, so when I ran across this book, needless to say I was ecstatic. This book is so cool, it covers all the basics for the holiday. Wearing of the green, trapping leprechauns, pot of gold hunt, Irish step dancing, luck of the 4 leaf clover, the traditional meal -corned beef and cabbage, and of course the St. Patty's day Parade. It is a perfect way to help explain the holiday to a young child. The illustrations, are bright and colorful. The text, is rhyming, and fun for the kids, I also like that it is a board book, the little ones can enjoy it, all they want, with no worries of damaging it.
