That’s What Leprechauns Do

 

  In honor of the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day holiday, I decided to review a story about the famous, little imp from Ireland-the Leprechaun. That’s What Leprechauns Do, written by Eve Bunting and illustrated by Emily Arnold McCully, does a good job introducing young readers to this mythical and mischievous character. Three Leprechauns must hurry to place their pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but that doesn’t stop them from having a wee bit of light-hearted fun along the way. Because that’s what Leprechauns do. This is a fun story with colorful, detailed watercolor illustrations that portray these legendary, tiny folk in their traditional green coats walking through the beautiful Irish country fields. This book was published in 2005 by Clarion Books. Both the author and the illustrator have written and illustrated numerous books. I recommend checking them out. 

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
