Reading these St. Patrick's Day books for kids together during March is a great way to explore Irish folklore and traditions that go beyond just leprechauns and pots of gold.

I love reserving a big stack of festive picture books from the library for each holiday during the year.

I believe read aloud time is the perfect opportunity to dig further into the traditions behind each celebration.

When my girls would come home with their Scholastic book order forms, there was always a selection of St. Patrick's Day books that focused on leprechauns and rhyme.

But there is so much more to St. Patrick's Day than pots of gold and rainbows. Irish folk lore and fables that introduce Ireland and the cleverness of her people in the face of challenges are filled with so much more depth and interest.

Here are list of some of the incredible St. Patrick's Day books for kids that I've read with my girls over the years. I hope your family loves them just as much as we have.

P.S. Looking for good reads before you travel to Ireland? This list of non-fiction books on Ireland has excellent options for both adults and kids.
