  1. If you want a children's book that explains the meaning of Saint Patrick's Day, Gail Gibbons has a great one! It is called Saint Patrick's Day. I love her nonfiction books! I read the Saint Patrick's one to my fourth and fifth grade special ed class while I was student teaching, and then we wrote a list of the facts we learned. The one funny thing was, no matter how many times I explained it to them, a few kids kept thinking St. Patrick was a leprechaun!


Thanks for leaving me happy notes!
