My daughter bought and read the entire "Pete McGee" series by this same author, to my young grandson - which was much to his delight. Seeing this new book available, I ordered a hard copy, passed it on to my daughter and just today talked to my grandson Gabe (who recently turned five) and declared it has now become his favorite book! Gabe is very bright and even at this tender young age, I have every confidence in his critiquing ability.
Each year, these pesky Leprechauns attack our home, make messes, turn things green, put googly eyes on things, and leave us gold coins in their wake. We thought this would be a great book to teach us how to catch those leprechauns! Sadly we do not get any trapping information in this book but the kids still loved it regardless.I loved that it was inexpensive, hardcover, and the wording was a bit glittery. The kids loved the story and were locked in, it's just the right length.
We received this book to give an honest review.LOVE, LOVE,LOVE this story of how to catch a leprechaun.I read this to both K and A at different times. A being three liked to find the leprechaun that was avoiding being captured and thought the pictures were cool.K read this book to me and couldn't believe all the traps that the kids were putting in place. He thought it was funny when the leprechaun took care of the smelly shoes. This book is a great story to read whenever but it is perfect for St. Patrick's Day .The pictures are bright and colorful and I think will keep the children engaged and laughing.
This unique book was a big hit for my newborn grandsons with their parents. I got a copy for all of my children's families including ones with no kids. It reminded all of us of our St. Patrick's day tradition of setting leprechaun traps.
You're a kid on a mission, an all consuming mission for one day a year. That mission....Catch a Leprechaun. They're wily, they're sneaky, they're pranksters, and they are determined to not be caught!How to Catch a Leprechaun is a holiday book full of fun and laughs. I recently read it to a room of girls (ages 6-9) and they all thought it was the funniest book ever. They laughed out loud, especially when that clever leprechaun turns the toilet green. They shouted out when they realized that the pages rhyme and they spent the next hour talking about leprechauns and how they would catch one themselves. I am certain I sent them home to their families with plans forming and an evening full of laughter and glinting eyes. I am hopeful that this morning when they woke up their traps caught more than their unsuspecting parents.This book is such a fun little read with wonderfully whimsical and bright photos. Each photo pulls the readers/listeners in, so many little pieces that grasp attention and have you looking closely trying to catch all the action. The leprechaun actually takes a bit of a backseat in the action when it comes to the pictures, but that makes it even more fun because you have to find him and you only get little snippets of him because well, leprechauns are sly and quick, but if ever one is to be caught I am betting on one of the girls in my class the other day...you should have heard their plans! ;-)This is a great read for pre-school ages up to I'd say about third grade and would be wonderful as a big book for a classroom so all the students get the pleasure of seeing the fun happening right before them. For classroom/home activities this would be a great book to use in encouraging the youngest 'readers' to problem solve, practice engineering skills, and most importantly to let their imaginations run wild and fill your classroom/house with laughter.
I love this story and that the leprechaun speaks in an Irish accent and phrases. My students loved that too!
The book was great! the kids loved it, just in time for St Patty's day when our naughty leprechaun brought it by.
Such a great book - brought to my daughter's Kindergarten class as a mystery reader and all the kids loved it!
