Yesterday a group of fifth graders came into the library for a class visit. Since Saint Patrick’s Day is coming soon, I thought we should celebrate with some Irish folktales and leprechaun stories.
“Amazing Bone” from Strega Nona …and More Stories About Magic
There aren’t a lot of good Saint Patrick’s Day videos for kids. So I decided to show “The Amazing Bone” because it features a magical creature as well.

HOW IT WENT:
Because I have been working more frequently with younger kids lately (my colleague does the older class visits), fifth graders seem like they are adults to me. This storytime went pretty well, and Fin M’Coul got a few laughs. The kids really seemed to like “The Amazing Bone” as well. Though the audio in our storyroom was giving a lot of reverb and the deep stringed instruments in the soundtrack made them laugh and think of farts. Maybe that’s why they liked the video.
