We just love books in our homeschool, we have them literally in every room of the house. We buy new ones for every holiday too! The books in this list are literally the best St Patricks Day books for kids we could find.
Most of the books in this list are picture books, but there are two nonfiction books that you can read and use in your homeschool or in the classroom too.
These kids books are so much fun and will definitely get you in the St Patrick’s Day spirit!
