Jamie seeks a way to prove that he is not too young to march in the big St. Patrick's Day parade. A simple but satisfying St. Patrick's Day read-aloud.
On March 17, young Jamie wakes up and realizes it’s St. Patrick’s Day. The green sashes are laid out on the table for his father and two older brothers–all ready for them to sport in the big parade.
This is all very exciting, but Jamie’s family had told him he was too small to walk in the parade–too young to make it all the way up Acorn Hill.
He decides to take matters (and his trusty flute) into his own small hands, and embarks on an early morning walk–all the way up Acorn Hill–with his dog Nell. What did they know?< >Sure enough, while the village is sleeping, he traverses the parade route to the top of the hill where he greets the sun with a hearty, “A happy St. Pat’s to you, sun.”
And, he makes it home before breakfast! While no one finds out what Jamie has done, you suspect that he may tell his family later. Kids will love the fact that Jamie climbs all the way up the hill when everyone said he couldn’t.
