I bought this to help me tell the story to my preschool children and it was great. They loved listening to it and it's bright and colourful.

Thorough book about St. Patrick's Day 10 Mar 2006
By charjere - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book gives a thorough, yet simple explanation about St. Patrick's Day. Each page has beautiful illustrations and one to three sentences. It gives a simple 2 page intro, then spends 7 pages about who Saint Patrick was, then 14 pages of all the ways people celebrate/symbols (church, leprechauns, shillelagh, harp, cards, sweets, flowers, plays, meal, parties, and parardes), then two pages on celebrating it in the US, and then 3 pages of legends about Saint Patrick. A great introduction for young children.

THE Book About St. Patrick's Day For Young Children 5 Mar 2009
By tvtv3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
During holiday seasons when I taught preschool, I always tried to find the best books possible that explained the origins of the holiday, why it is celebrated, and how people celebrate the holiday today. For St. Patrick's Day, Gail Gibbons ST. PATRICK'S DAY is the best book I have ever come across that gives a thorough explanation of the holiday for young children. The first part of the book explains who St. Patrick was and why St. Patrick's Day is celebrated. The last part of the book describes ways the people (especially in the United States) celebrate the holiday and the meaning of some of the symbols. There is also a kind of epilogue to the main story that briefly describes some of the legends about St. Patrick. Each page of the book only has a few, simple, straight-forward, and easy to read sentences accompanied with large and playful illustrations. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to explain to young children about St. Patrick's Day.

A fabulous book about St. Patrick's Day 21 Mar 2006
By Moira Ferriter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a beautifully illustrated, well written, story about the life of St. Patrick and descriptions of how and why we celebrate this holiday. My daughter is very interested in her Irish heritage and read it to her Kindergarten class this year. It was a hit!

Perfect information text for St. Patty's Day 20 Mar 2013
By M Adler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Cute book. Gibbons always delivers when it comes to informational text that is usable with young readers/learners. Every student who heard this book liked it, and it's a great way to introduce this author to the kids. I twinned this with the DePaolo book that was historical fiction and found the kids loved both and got different information from each.

great book for learning about st patrick's day & american traditions during st patrick's day 17 Nov 2008
By Krazy4Kid'sbooks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I first bought this book over 6 years ago when my older son was 5. We loved reading it together & we shared it with some friends from overseas so that they would know how American's celebrate St Patrick's Day. I'm actually buying the book again for my two younger children this year to give as a gift. They may be a little young for it now but I believe they will grow to love it like their older brother & I love the idea of reading it as part of our family holiday traditions. Really a great Gail Gibbons book. (My two year old really enjoys Gail Gibbons Thanksgiving book.)
