    My four-year-old granddaughter absolutely love this book. Fascinated about the leprechaun.! we had to make the traps just like in the book!

  2. allie petersen

    My kids loved it!

  3. Michael Morgan

    Loved by my 18 month old Grandson
    He loved the word play and the leprechaun. Just the right age with the artwork and the rhyme for a 18th month old till 4 years. Fun for Boys and Girls alike. Sent one also to my 2 year old Granddaughter.

  4. D. Bishop

    An entertaining read for a young child.
    Book was a gift to a child who has yet to learn to read but loves books.

    This is a perfect addition to our holiday.
    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. This is a wonderful book it really does sound a lot like The night before Christmas, which is also why I wanted it. It does a great job, rhyming, it’s way along, St Patty ‘s Day events. I love how they build a leprechaun trap, and try to catch him. It tells of wearing green, decorating, bagpipes, and visions of gold coins, dancing in their heads. This is a perfect addition to our holiday.

    Fun for Kids
    This is a cute little story about an Irish family that celebrates St. Patrick’s Day. Written in the same style as A Visit From St. Nicholas / ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore.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.

    I like the series not really this particular book
    I have a two year old i’m teaching about holidays. I get one usually a month before the holiday and read it to her each night and retire it after the holiday. I get super excited for holidays but didn’t know how to explain it to a toddler. There’s also not a lot of books out there that do this. I loved the valentines day, thanksgiving, halloween books the most. I really didn’t like the christmas book. It was all about how stressful xmas time is. While true i didn’t want my daughter thinking thats how it was. She can be stressed about it when shes 30 like me 🙂 The first one i bought was thanksgiving and it covered the basics like cooking and family coming in and being thankful. The st patricks day one was kind of weird with leprechauns hiding things in their yard and outsmarting the family. I guess it’s better than pictures of grownups at bars drinking green beer. So this book was a little strange but i like the series and wish i could just buy a set to give as gifts.

    We love these books!
    My daughter is 6 months old and I decided to get her all the books in the series and read them to her before each holiday, and continue this tradition as she gets older. The books are a lot of fun and well-written, the illustrations are great, and it’s a joy to read these to my daughter on the eve of every holiday. I’m looking forward to her growing up with these books. Highly recommend any in the series!
