I can’t believe I’m saying this, but St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner! If you’re like us—a family learning Spanish—you’re looking for St. Patrick’s Day books in Spanish. I did my best to find you some, but let me tell you it was hard! Which makes sense since St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday celebrated mostly in Ireland and the U.S. However, with the amount of Spanish speakers in the United States, I really think there should be more Spanish translations of all the wonderful St. Patrick’s Day books out there. (But maybe you weren’t asking for my two cents?)
Did I really just use sense, since, and cents in one paragraph? Ha!
Without further ado, here’s the list of St. Patrick’s Day books in Spanish to get you ready for reading in Spanish in March!

Cómo atrapar a un duende por Adam Wallace; Ilustrado por Andy Elkerton; Traducido por Joana Delgado Sánchez
I haven’t read this one, but it sounds fun and has a 5-star rating on Amazon! I used to LOVE trying to set up Leprechaun traps when I was little. Is this a tradition in your family or at your kids’ school?
Celebra el Día de San Patricio con Samantha y Lola por Alma Flor Ada y F. Isabel Campoy
I haven’t read this particular book, but I have checked out others from this series about U.S. holidays from Alma Flor Ada and F. Isabel Campoy. I love the work they do! This duo is comin in clutch for us this March! This is the one and only book listed here that was written in Spanish originally.
If you want to read more about the series this book is a part of head to Alma Flor Ada’s website here.
¡Es el Día de San Patricio! por Richard Sebra
We’ve checked out these non-fiction easy readers from our library before. I really like them (even though there is not much to them) because they help my kids who are very much beginners learn the key vocabulary words around the theme—but in complete sentences.
On St. Patrick’s Day / El día de San Patricio por Judith Mazzeo Zocchi

One last book for you is one that I made! This is a booklet from my Jump Into Spanish club. Each week I send Spanish lesson plans straight to the inboxes of all the members . . . which include booklets like this one!
This booklet introduces a lot of St. Patrick’s Day vocabulary in different combinations.
- First print out the last two pages of pictures. You’ll use those to cut and paste into the book once it’s assembled.
- Next, print ALL but the last two pages in “booklet” format (it’s a setting when you get to the print screen).
- Fold the pages in half and staple in the middle. (A long-arm stapler words best.)
- Have your kids cut out the pictures and match them to the correct pages and paste them in!
If you need any help, I’m just an email away!
