March Online Book Club

The theme this month is St. Patrick’s Day. Honestly, with older kids, this is a harder theme for me. When they were younger, I would have just grabbed a bunch of books. I mean, just look at what we had in our March book basket a couple of years ago. Now, I’m. thinking Irish and Ireland. But I can’t find anything here at the house. How do I have this hole in my book collection?

I have one book in mind but I can’t think of the title and I can’t find it in my Kindle books, though I feel certain I bought it. It is the story of a family member who was kidnapped on the coast of Ireland and brought to America to be sold to be someone’s wife. We are unsure about how much of it is accurate, though we know this girls existed and is in our family line. (My mom found the title of the book for me and I do have it on my Kindle, though I don’t know why I couldn’t find it! It is called Honor O’Flynn: a search for the True Will of God.)

Do you have any suggestions for books related to St. Patrick’s Day or anything Ireland, Irish, or related? I need some ideas! Maybe some travel books. I enjoy those.

Check out what others are planning for the month.

    I’m having the same issue, and will probably fall back to “I Heard Good News Today” by Cornelia Lehn. It’s short stories for children. I’ve used the book for my kids for years. The stories are short enough to hold the attention of younger ages, and are engaging enough they don’t seem to outgrow. It contains many early missionary stories, including St. Patrick.

    I couldn’t think of a single thing… I’m hoping still, to figure something out, but might not until end of month. I hope you enjoy the book once you have it well found 🙂

      It is a super hard topic for those without little ones to do cute picture books with. I did get a hold of the book, so to speak, and will enjoy rereading it. I had been thinking about it off and on for a couple of months so it’ll be good to read again.
