Learning About Ireland and St. Patrick’s Day

March’s Online Book Club theme was St. Patrick’s Day. The kids and I had a lot of fun not only reading some good books on St. Patrick’s day, but we learned a little about Ireland as well.

I have used affiliate links in this post. To learn more, head over here.

O’Sullivan Stew

Ok, this book has nothing to do with St. Patrick’s day, and very little to do with stew, but it was a great story! We had fun reading this one. Our imaginations were put to work and we were pleasantly surprised by the end of the book.

I loved how this showed bravery and compassion on the part of Kate O’Sullivan. The girls loved seeing a girl as the lead, not only teaching the town what it meant to be a town but also saving her family!

Cute books with great life lessons.

A Fine St. Patrick’s Day

What a cute little book this was! Two towns competing to be the best-decorated town for St. Patrick’s Day. When a man comes looking for help, one town shuts him down while the other drops everything to help.

This book was not only about St. Patrick’s Day but also a great lesson in what matters most, others around us and helping. We enjoyed talking about this book and the lesson we had learned.


Since we homeschool, I love to take every opportunity to find learning opportunities. Well, that is doable with Productive Homeschooling’s Notebooking pages. They had a full unit of notebooking pages for Ireland, and many other countries as well.

With some books from the library and these notebooking pages, we were able to add some geography lessons into our book club this month.
