Patrick: Patron Saint of Ireland (Tomie dePaola) - Fans of the prolific dePaola's heartfelt celebrations of religious themes will welcome this handsome picture-book biography. His signature style is well showcased here and, as he did in The Lady of Guadalupe , dePaola effectively integrates both the tones and design elements of (in this case) Celtic art into his renderings. As with his pictorial biography Francis: The Poor Man of Assisi , dePaola succeeds in placing a near-mythic religious figure within a historic context and successfully relates the familiar and not-so-familiar details of his life: Patrick was of British (although when it was a part of the Holy Roman Empire), not Celtic, ancestry; March 17 is the date of his death, not of his birth. Readers will particularly enjoy the addition of five legends about St. Patrick, including the snakes and the shamrock. This well-designed entry has perennial appeal. Recommended for ages 4-8.
The Luckiest St. Patrick's Day Ever (Teddy Slater) - The St. Patrick's Day parade is off to a very fine start. / The Leprechaun family is marching with lots of heart! / Share in their dancing, share in their fun. / You'll have the luck of the Irish when this day is done! Top o' the morning! It's March 17th, and the Leprechauns are gathered for their favorite day of the year. Join them as they celebrate St. Patrick's Day with music, dancing, and a parade! Teddy Slater's delightful rhyming story is accompanied by lively illustrations from Ethan Long. Recommended for ages 4-8.
The Night Before St. Patrick's Day (Natasha Wing) - 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? Natasha Wing's latest title is once again told in verse to the same meter of Clement Moore's classic. Recommended for ages 4-8.
Where Was Patrick Henry on the 29th of May? (Jean Fritz) - Patrick Henry wasn't particularly well spoken. As a lawyer, he mumbled through some of his early cases.

Patrick Henry (29 May 1736 – 6 Jun 1799) - Patrick Henry was an American orator, politician and Founding Father who led the movement for independence in Virginia in the 1770s. He is most known for his "Give me Liberty, or give me Death!" speech. An impassioned promoter of the American Revolution and Independence, Patrick Henry would go onto lead the “anti-federalists” who criticized the United States Constitution fearing that it endangered the rights of the States and therefore individual freedoms. His opposition would be instrumental in the adoption of the Bill of Rights. George Washington offered Henry the Secretary of State post in the first Presidential administration, but he declined due to his distaste for the Federalist political agenda. He would eventually change his tune after witnessing the radicalism of the French Revolution and began to understand the necessity of a secure Federal government.
