Nonfiction Monday is hosted today by Rasco from RIF.
With March 17th less than a week away, my selection is "St. Patrick's Day" by Gail Gibbons.
Gibbons brings her characteristic thoroughness to this book which provides a discussion of who St. Patrick was together with the celebrations and Irish symbols -- shamrocks, Celtic harps, leprechauns, and shillelaghs, etc. -- associated with St. Patrick and Ireland. The book concludes with the telling of several legends about St. Patrick. The clear, straight forward text is highlighted with lively illustrations liberally accented in green.
