Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.
The Story of the Leprechaun by Katherine Tegen & illustrated by Sally Anne Lambert
In this original tale about a shoemaking leprechaun and a greedy man named Tim, the reason behind why Leprechauns hide their pot of gold at the end of rainbows is revealed.
That’s What Leprechauns Do by Eve Bunting & illustrated by Emily Arnold McCully
The three leprechauns Ari, Boo, and Col have a job to do. They must race to where they’ve buried the pot of gold and dig it up before the rainbow comes. The clouds are already gathering, so there’ll be no time for mischief along the way. But Mrs. Ballybunion’s cow, Miss Maud Murphy’s hen, and Old Jamie soon find out that the three clever fellows can’t resist having a little fun on the road to Paddywhackers Bog. For, in addition to putting a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, mischief is what leprechauns do!
