St. Patrick's Day

"St. Patrick's Day" by Brenda Haugen

Learn about some of the common ways people celebrate this holiday today like wearing green, having parades, wishing people "the luck of the Irish", displaying the flag of Ireland and more.

"An old story says that St. Patrick used shamrocks to teach people about Christianity. He explained that, just as the shamrock has three leaves, Christians believe God is three things in one."

This is a short picture book perfect for younger children. If you like this style, there are other holiday books in this series by Brenda Haugen.
