What are the odds that not one, but two, books about leprechauns were both created OTP? The books are very different, but both are delightful and fun reads. These are great gifts for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day holiday. So when grandma asks what to get the “darlings,” refer her to these unique books: The Lucky Leprechaun and the The Naughty Leprechaun.
The Lucky Leprechaun was created and written by two moms from the Johns Creek area.
“Lucky the Leprechaun is a fun little read that uniquely captivates with rhyming words suited for children aged 2-102. Lucky teaches these children the importance of treating others with kindness and respect, behaving and listening well. The book also comes with an engaging craft. A Leprechaun trap that the children will build themselves! Now you, too, can learn the ways of Lucky the Leprechaun and do your best to entice him with some gold coins. Try as you might, this little Leprechaun just may be too quick or clever to ever be trapped.”
Samantha Brown and Risa Ramji came up with the idea on a girls’ trip. What is about girls’ trips and our Made OTP products? I guess a little away time lets the creative juices flow! They both have young children, an Irish background, and a love for writing.
For $19.99 you can get the gift set which includes a book, craft, and a CD. You can also by the items individually. There are great companion activities on their site too. The trap is an adorable idea and they have tons of images on their Facebook page of the kids’ version.
The Naughty Leprechaun written by Alpharetta mom Stephanie Hicks is the cutest story about two leprechaun brothers, Liam and Leyland.
It started as a family tradition and then became a story that all families can share for generations. One of the brothers creates havoc and pranks, and the other one provides treasures and treats. The concept is based on the idea that luck is created. My dad used to always say, “The harder I practice, the luckier I get.” Meaning you create your own luck! For a more detailed review, check out Alpharetta Mom’s blog review of the book.
For $29.99, you receive a hard-cover book, an etched coin, and a safe keep box. The book is available at 3 OTP locations: Alpharetta, East Cobb, and Woodstock Learning Express stores. Visit the Facebook page and consider bringing this tradition into your home. That’s the literary scoop!
