    3.5 - My son and I had a great time reading all about Irish folklore and leprechauns as well as other "creatures" like banshees, etc. It was the perfect read for the week of St. Patrick's Day. 3.5 - My son and I had a great time reading all about Irish folklore and leprechauns as well as other "creatures" like banshees, etc. It was the perfect read for the week of St. Patrick's Day.

    I like this book because it answers questions that some students might have when thinking of this culture. This book can be used in class when wanting to learn about the Irish culture. This can be an activity for students to discover the unknown, learn something new, learn a different culture.

    Who needs a story written ABOUT some of the best stories ever? Why not just enjoy Irish folklore? Revel in the playful, and sometimes not so playful, deeds of the wee folk, whether meeting to dance beneath the stars, tearing apart houses that were built on fairy roads, or spiriting away their little hoards of gold. Learn how to find that gold, how to lift a fairy spell, and what it means when a Banshee wails outside your window.

    Pretty fun little at-a-glance summary of Irish fairy lore. Definitely written for kids, but fun for anyone - especially around St. Patrick's day. Pretty fun little at-a-glance summary of Irish fairy lore. Definitely written for kids, but fun for anyone - especially around St. Patrick's day.

    Eleanor says: I think I believe in fairies. And leprechauns. Leprechauns are a kind of fairy. My mom did not know that. Neither did I. We learned there are many kinds of fairies.

    The book is about the research of Irish folklore and the importance of Irish history. Throughout the chapters there is the history of Irish story tellers and stories that are famous in Ireland about leprechauns, fairies, dancing, music and more. This book is wonderful in discussing the types of fries that are famous in Irish folktales. The book is simplistic enough for younger children to learn about folktales, but there are not a ton of folktales for the story, it is rather more of a research n The book is about the research of Irish folklore and the importance of Irish history.

    What a delightful little read Mary Pope Osborne has published through Leprechauns and Irish folklore : a nonfiction companion to Magic Tree House #43 : Leprechaun in late winter! Not only are the variety of leprechauns identified and described but some examples of their pranks are also given into account. For anyone who believes in the Emerald Isle and its magic its a must read.

    We've read several of the non-fiction companion Research Guides and so far our girls have enjoyed them. I thought they'd really like this one, too (after all, it is about fairies and our oldest is fairy-crazy), but our oldest in particular was quite reluctant to listen to me read it. I think that she had another book in mind for me to read, but still, I thought it would be fun to read this book for St. Patrick's Day.

We were able to finish this book in two readings, which is a bit fast for us, but I wanted to read it as close to St. Patrick's Day as possible (after all, we just finished our last Valentine's Day book!) In any case, our girls seemed far more interested in the last few chapters, so we enjoyed reading it together. They did not, however, appreciate my attempts at an Irish brogue, so I gave that up quickly. new words: clurichaun, torcs, rath

    Focusing on the tales of Leprechauns, I paired this book with "The Night Before St. Patrick's Day" by Natasha Wing. In the fiction book, Tim and Maureen try to capture a leprechaun with various traps. Tim and Maureen placed a coin at the end of each trap. In my nonfiction selection, leprechauns are revealed to be bankers. Leprechauns love their gold and they always keep it hidden. The author informs the reader that leprechauns are very tricky fairies.

    I enjoyed this book and feel that it is good introduction for kids to Irish folklore. I think it's great that it is created as a companion for the book Leprechauns in Late Winter. If a child is reading a Magic Tree House story and has questions about subjects mentioned like, "What are leprechauns,ballybogs or banshees?" then they can turn to this for information. It is written in simple language easily understandable to young kids. I enjoyed this book and feel that it is good introduction for kids to Irish folklore.

    For years, I was not 100% sure if I was Irish or not. Earlier this year I learned that my great, great grandpa really did come from Ireland. I am 1/8 Irish. Now that I know I am Irish, I couldn't resist reading this addition to the Magic Tree House Research Guide series to celebrate St. Patrick's Day this year! Anyone who is curious about Irish folklore or interested in fairies will enjoy this one. You may even become a believer in the magic of Irleand and fairies after reading this one.

    A nice intro to Irish folklore for young children. Kids who are already fans of the Magic Tree House series will have an automatic in, but it's suitable for kids who are just interested in learning more about this specific subject, too. I liked it. It wasn't super compelling for an adult, but it's a great resource for its target age range. A nice intro to Irish folklore for young children.

    Good companion guide to the fiction book and I love that the author makes these. What I love more is how she encourages the readers to research more and offers resources. I love the fact that she also tells readers that librarians can help them with their research. This previous sentence may be biased since I am a school librarian!

    Children's nonfiction books sometimes provides the best information about a topic. I'm researching fairies and folklore for my novel. This is a fun read about fairies and stories in Ireland. Did you know that a leprechaun is a solitary fairy? Children's nonfiction books sometimes provides the best information about a topic. I'm researching fairies and folklore for my novel.

    Probably the most fun of the fact tracker books I've encountered yet! I really enjoy legends and folklore and this entire fact tracker was full of just that. From faeries to leprechauns and even a couple of real life people inspired by faeriedom. Probably the most fun of the fact tracker books I've encountered yet!

    Nice. It's got a wide range of the wee folk covered here, complete with some of the more unsavory ones. And yet, like all other Magic Tree house books, it somehow makes light of murderous intentions. Nice. It's got a wide range of the wee folk covered here, complete with some of the more unsavory ones.

    Another very interesting read. It talked about the Irish belief in fairies and how leprechauns are actually fairies who hide gold and are very tricky. It talks about Irish Folklore.

    This is described as a non-fiction companion book. Yet it really is folklore. I don't know if children will know the difference. If they don't, they are going to be really scared.
