iBLURB - St. Patrick's Day

It's the night before St. Patrick's Day, and Tim and Maureen are wide awake setting traps to catch a leprechaun! When they wake the next morning to the sound of their dad playing the bagpipes and the smell of their mom cooking green eggs, they're shocked to find that they've actually caught a leprechaun. But will they be able to find his pot of gold? 

This is an ideal first board book to share with your baby or toddler as a first step to discovering the fun and celebration of St Patrick’s Day. The pages feature traditional St Patrick’s Day images, such as shamrocks, harps and parades, and there are lots of different touch-and-feel textures which little fingers will love to explore.

Ten Lucky Leprechauns  by Kathryn Heling
Fiddle-de-fizz, 'tis magic, it is!
When leprechauns find each other.

Count from one to ten as one little leprechaun looking for treasure magically becomes ten silly leprechaun friends at the end of the rainbow! A humorous, rhyming celebration of St. Patrick's Day!

Patrick  by Quentin Blake Setting out to buy a violin, Patrick finds that playing it transforms not only his outlook on life, but the lives of all he meets, be it plant, animal or human! Dull, everyday things become colourful and fun, and those who are poor or unhappy are rejuvenated by music's magical qualities.
 Blake's illustrations are inimitable, and his text is perfectly in tune with his style of image, which shows the transformations taking place - colour, stars and fireworks appearing around (and from) the characters and their surroundings. Blake's text and images are readily accessible to small children, filled with spiky movement and quirky action.
