15+ St. Patrick’s Day Children’s Books

St. Patrick’s Day has changed a lot for me since my early 20’s.

What used to involve day drinking green beer has turned into leprechaun trapping, gold finding, and rainbow making. Sound familiar?

Growing up, my parents really didn’t do anything big for St. Patrick’s Day. I might have had a special treat of lucky charms but that’s about it.

We didn’t do much in elementary school either. It was never a holiday that I got really excited for until recently.

When you’re an Italian girl.. and you marry an Irish guy.. and you name your dog Murphy and your son Finnegan.. you really have no choice than to love and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!

I have some fun activities and crafts I want to share with you soon for the big day, but let’s start out with some of our families favorite St. Patrick’s Day books to get everyone excited!
