My Review:
I am part Irish, hence my blondish hair and green eyes! I have been learning about my heritage as I've gotten older, and I'm teaching my children to do the same. We are actually learning about a little bit of everything, because we are all made from people of all sorts of backgrounds and from different countries. My family always celebrates St. Patrick's Day by wearing green, and joining in on the fun with green eggs and ham, green pancakes, and in the evening, green beer for the adults, and green milk for the kids! This book is a great coffee table book. Also great for keeping in your bag to read anytime. Maybe a great book to also take into the restroom with you when your looking for something interesting to read. It would also make a great gift for your Irish friends and relatives!

This book is full of Irish sayings, Lexicons, Unofficial Laws, Facts and Comparisons, Q & A, Animals, and more! 

Some of the Unofficial Laws (and a bit of advice) says:

Bad times make good stories. - Michael Dolan

And it's true, the worst days and times in your life, make the greatest stories!

If you have to ask if somebody is male or female, don't. - Patrick Murray

Again, this is so true! If you don't know if a person is a male or female, a boy or a girl, it's honestly best not to ask at all. Like them for WHO they are, for their personality and their character. Unless of course, you want to date them, then, you might want to ask.
