From the Author
I got the idea for this book from a teacher who said her students love to set leprechaun traps. But those tricksters seem to always get away!

Two children set 'leprechaun traps' the night before St. Patrick's Day. The night morning they found they've caught one and they ask him where to find his hidden gold, but he tricks them and wishes them better luck next year. A super simple story that will not bore young readers. May not be very exciting for older kids but it might give them some ideas for their own traps, which they might like to make with a younger sibling. I love how the siblings in this book treat each other. Usually at holidays you see kids fighting over who got the best toy or who has more candy, but these kids work together nicely!
We also have The Night Before Easter by the same author, which is also cute but I don't really recommend it as it's all about getting treats, which is probably better for a classroom setting with multi-cultural, multi-religious backgrounds but not ideal for the use I had hoped. Anyway! This is a cute book with a fun story that (IMO) children age 3-7 could enjoy.
This story is very imaginative and full of fun St. Patrick's Day themes (shamrocks, a pot of gold, etc.). The illustrations are beautifully done and very whimsical. I have bought all these books for my godson and my mother (who is a lower grade teacher and reads them too her kids in the classroom). They are so cute, I may get them for myself too. This book is fun for all.
