St. Patrick’s Day Books for Baby

Considering my baby was born on St. Patrick’s Day, it is now one of my favorite holidays! Turns out books about leprechauns are adorable. I threw in some books about rainbows because rainbows and clovers just feel right. Here are a few of our old favorites and new finds.

You’re My Little Lucky Charm

by Natalie Marshall

We have had this book since my sons first St. Patrick’s Day and it’s a favorite of both kids. Brightly colored and sweetly illustrated. Every page is cuter than the last but it is a quick read. The You’re My Little series is one I keep going back to, perfect for holiday gift baskets.

How to Catch a Leprechaun

by Adam Wallace

This is just one of the books that features traps for Leprechauns, I just hope it doesn’t inspire my son to try to build his own. I must say, those traps are genius and the illustrations jump off of the page! I do always want to spark creativity so maybe building leprechaun traps wouldn’t be so bad. This is a great book for older kids but perfect for baby to enjoy.

Happy Rainbow

by Hannah Eliot

If you have a rainbow/color lover like I do, this is the book for you. Darling and bright, with glitter! Don’t worry, the glitter does not flake off, we’ve baby tested it. The rhymes are very simple but lend themselves to a sing-songy read. That must be what keeps bringing the kids back. Even the baby waddles over to grab it off of the bookcase.

Baby Loves Photosynthesis on St. Patrick’s Day

by Ruth Spiro

This book feels a little disjointed in the first few pages because it talks about the history of St. Patrick’s Day. I was expecting more photosynthesis up front but it does transition well from clovers to chlorophyll. This one is definitely for older kids. While my son did hang in for a few pages and actually found the science interesting, he was ready to move on before the last page.

Peppa Loves St. Patrick’s Day

by Scholastic

This was the just for fun pick because the kids love Peppa. Exactly what you expect, funny and cute.

Look & Learn Rainbow

Baby Einstein

Both of my kids have loved puppet books and I love that this one has a little more learning potential. I love seeing the wonder on Maeve’s face when the puppets move. They’re the perfect size for baby and we keep a few in the car when we’re on the go. Throw it in the diaper bag so you always have a toy that teaches.

The Night Before St. Patrick’s Day

by Natasha Wing

This one is my favorite pick this month. I might just be inspired to build a Leprechaun trap with my son this year. So charming and kind of funky (in the best way) illustrations. It was the perfect length to keep both kids engaged through the entire read.

I would love to know what your favorite St. Patrick’s Day books are, drop them in the comments.
