The Book Report: How to Catch a Leprechaun
It's time for your Elf On The Shelf to move over, because it's Leprechaun season! St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner, and it's the perfect opportunity to put on some green, do a little jig, and party it up, Irish style!
This month's Book Report is brought to you by the fun and mischief of leprechauns. How To Catch A Leprechaun is the perfect rhyming, silly, and celebratory story to kick off the holiday, and I especially love this book for my creative movement classes since it's full of action words, directions, and prompts to explore all kinds of dance elements.
My students love the fun rhythm and rhyme of Adam Wallace's book, and the story lends itself perfectly to obstacle courses, quiet, creeping movements, surprise twists and jumps, snapping and tapping rhythms (like the Leprechaun does), and is just a whole lot of fun!
Will you be trying to catch any leprechauns this St. Patty's Day? I'd love to know your favorite books and traditions! Be sure and check out March's Brain Dance as well, for spring time dance moves to keep the fun going!
