St. Patrick's Day Giveaway!

I hope that everyone is having a fabulous St. Patrick's Day.  Here in Boston people go CRAZY on St. Paddy's Day!  Yesterday we spent all day in South Boston (aka Southie) and had so much fun with all the craziness.  I can't even imagine what is going on down there right now on parade day!

A few weeks ago, super sweet author Stephanie Hicks emailed me and offered to give away a copy of her amazing book to one of my readers.

The Naughty Leprechaun Story Cover

The Naughty Leprechaun Story is an interesting twist on the traditional leprechaun story.  Leyland is a mischievous, naughty leprechaun who loves to play pranks.  Leyland spent most of his days in cobbler school in the time out chair!  What a naughty leprechaun!  His twin brother Liam is a hardworking leprechaun who rewards good deeds and hard work. 

This book can turn into a super fun family tradition that teaches your children (or students) the importance of hard work.  For the three days leading up to St. Patrick's Day, children can decide if they want the nice or naughty leprechaun to visit, by leaving the special coin on the Leyland or Liam side next to their bed.  This could also be done in school!  The next morning they will know which leprechaun visited: if it was Liam there will be treasures.  If it was Leyland, there will be pranks and sweet treats.  How fun is this?  I know that when I have little ones at home I will definitely be starting up this tradition with them.  I also started it at school this year, and the kids went WILD for this book.

I especially love the page where the little boy and girl are building a leprechaun trap.  This would be absolutely perfect to start a leprechaun trap building project in your classroom.  Have you seen all of the great plan making, writing prompts and so much more that ties into these traps?  Here are a few of my favorites:
