Tomorrow is Saint Patrick’s Day! Are your shamrocks ready? Do you have at least some green in tomorrow’s clothes? Children could read a great book, The Night Before Saint Patrick’s Day, written by Natasha Wing and illustrated by Amy Wummer.
Saint Patrick’s Day remembers the death of Bishop Patrick, patron saint of Ireland. Bishop Patrick was born circa AD 389 and died circa AD 461. Born in England, he brought Christianity to Ireland. Little is really known about his life. Children could read St. Patrick’s Day by Gail Gibbons.
Ireland celebrates its National Holiday, Saint Patrick’s Day. Slightly smaller than the state of West Virginia, Ireland has 4.6 million people. Dublin is the capital.
