With St. Patrick’s Day so close I wanted to share a couple of St. Patrick’s Day picture books with you!

Actually, that might be a bit of stretch – truth be told, most of them are about St. Patrick’s Day but one of them is a book about Ireland and one is a book of limericks . . . But in my mind it falls under the same category. Plus limericks are so short and silly they will definitely appeal to kids of all ages.

While this doesn’t count as an Irish or St. Patrick’s Day book (I’m just breaking all the rules today), I generally make green eggs for my kids on St. Patrick’s day so I usually like to read Green Eggs and Ham on that day as well. 🙂

What are you favorite St. Patrick’s Day picture books?
