A very basic introduction to the contemporary, secular holiday of St. Patrick's Day. A good place to start with a young child that focuses on tangible represenations of the holiday, as opposed to its cultural history or meaning.

Gail Gibbons does excellent things for children's non-fiction. The Moon book covers a lot of areas related to the moon--legends, phases, tidal effect, eclipses, lunar geography, and exploration.--in brief, but simply and clearly. A great introduction to lunar study. Backmatter has even more: milestones, legends, and facts.
