Jamie O'Rourke and the Big Potato

by Tomie dePaola

This adorably illustrated book is fun to read around St. Patrick's Day (and be sure to do an Irish accent -- kids think it's so funny!)  In the story, the laziest man in all of Ireland catches a leprechaun, who offers a potato seed instead of a pot of gold for his freedom.  There's no expected character change here -- he stays lazy! -- so this isn't necessarily a book that will teach a moral.  But... it is super fun and cute, and we read it to our classes every year!
