To keep with the St. Patrick’s Day theme (after covering recipes and crafts) or if you’re planning on studying Ireland, here are 20+ books about St. Patrick’s Day for kids.

I’ve also included a few that aren’t St. Patrick’s Day specific, but are related to Ireland and/or Irish culture. When we cover St. Patrick’s Day in Tot School or Homeschool Preschool (or beyond), I intend to make it more of an Ireland and Irish Culture theme rather than just St. Patrick’s Day.
