Paddy and the Wolves: Encouraging Little Ones to Pray and Praise the Lord (A Book Review & Giveaway)


I would love to share with all of you this great new children's book about St. Patrick titled Paddy and the Wolves written by Steve Nagel and illustrated by Jen Norton. I have been given a copy of this book and it's companion coloring book to by Gracewatch Media to review. I hope you get as excited about it as we are!

I never thought I would scour the world over for St. Patrick's Day celebration ideas before I married into a very Irish family. The McCarthy's take feasting on this day to a whole new level, one which was completely foreign to me. And it all circled around the food: corned beef & cabbage and loaves upon loaves of great Nanna's Irish soda bread. Now my little ones look forward to celebrating St. Patrick's feast day with great delight.

I am so thrilled to have been introduced to Paddy and the Wolves. It is a delightful children's book with gorgeous illustrations and will be a treasure for our collection for years to come. The best part of this book is that it encourages little ones to praise the Lord in a special way. If you want to breath new life into how you celebrate St. Patrick's day this year pick up a copy of this great book and it's coloring companion. There is also a great FREE printable board game that we will being playing after we read the book as a family. The kids had so much fun putting the board game together!

  8. We love to celebrate with the kids. The little ones love coloring St Patrick coloring pages, the bigger kids and little kids dress in green. We eat corned beef and cabbage. We celebrate at home since we live on a farm out of town. The board game looks so awesome and I bet my kiddos would love it. :)
