Back of Book:
Legend has it that if you catch a leprechaun, he’ll grant you a wish. But, be careful! Leprechauns are full of trickery. To catch one, you’ll need to be clever in crafting your trap. Grab some glitter and glue and get prepared for your wily holiday visitors!

On the night before St. Patrick’s Day, leprechauns show up to steal your treasures and then disappear as quickly as they came. However, if you’re careful you might be able to catch one and then he’ll grant you a wish. You’ll have to be sneaky and set just the right trap to.
My Review:
One of my favorite things about teaching younger children is their fascination with legends and fairy tales. My students loved hearing this fun story about children trying to catch a leprechaun and take his gold. I love that the text in this book is broken up into steps on how to create a leprechaun trap. This is a perfect book to use discuss sequencing. The illustrations are detailed and show readers all the ideas that the children had to create a trap. The back of the book has a note from the author on how to create a leprechaun trap. My students loved this book and were excited to create a fun trap together.
