  • St. Patrick's Day

    By Gail Gibbons

    Read by Qarie Marshall

    A children's story about the background and legends of St. Patrick's Day.

    "In a book similar to those she's done for topics ranging from boats to birthdays, Gibbons offers information about St. Patrick's Day in an easily digestible text and a clean, colorful format. She covers the salient details of Patrick's life--his boyhood in slavery, his return to Britain, where he was ordained, and his life dedicated to the conversion of the Irish--and she highlights the symbols and happenings of St. Patrick's Day. At the conclusion, she describes some of St. Patrick's miracles, one to an illustrated box. The artwork, as one would expect, is heavily accented with green and is typical of Gibbon's work--simply drawn, yet full of zest and quite appealing for its audience. A festive addition to holiday shelves." - Booklist

    By Maira Kalman

    Starred review. "Vibrant gouache paintings - some full-spread, some more intimate images - capture Jefferson’s family and colleagues, his interests and pursuits, his lavish home, and its inferior slave quarters. The voice is that of a curious child reporting fascinating research findings. The rangy tone, however, allows Kalman to supply a wealth of information... Playful but informative, as quick witted as Jefferson himself, this will...inspire young readers to learn more." - Booklist
