    This book was full of information and history on the background of St Patrick s Day and its accompanying symbols, so I was excited to read it I was, however, a little bored and q lot disappointed with the almost textbook like delivery of information I wish that the illustrations werea part of the story and that the information had been presented in a fun and interestIng manner.
