“In a magic place called Emerald Isle,
the mythical leprechauns live in style.
Not easy to find as they’re quite small,
most leprechauns stand just two feet tall!”
This is an original story written in rhyme about the legend of the leprechaun . As fun to make and color the original illustrations as it is to read, the St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Tale mini book is an engaging, educational way to celebrate the luck of the Irish.
In addition to the mini book, we provide a variety of common core language arts activities for you to pick and choose from, all of which are presented within the context of the story.
