When St. Patrick's Day rolls around, you should be sure to wear some green (so you don't get pinched!) but there are also lots of other ways to celebrate . . . dye your milk green, set a leprechaun trap, go hunting for four leaf clovers . . . the list goes on. While success may vary for many St. Patrick's Day exploits, sitting down with a stack of festive books is never a bad way to go, and here's a list of our favorites. There's a great mix here of more historically accurate books (like *Patrick: Patron Saint of Ireland*), Irish folk-ish tale books (like *Fiona's Luck*) and some newer contemporary stories (such as *Shannon and the World's Tallest Leprechaun*)—we hope our list guides you to a new favorite!
