Book Description:

Looking for a Leprechaun is the story of a boy named Rich who lives in a magical world, but everywhere he turns he hears people saying he doesn't belong. When a fairy tells him if he finds a Leprechaun it will help him find where he belongs, Rich sets out on an adventure. The search for a leprechaun is difficult. Close to giving up, Rich hears some words of wisdom. Will he be able to find what he is searching for? What if it's been inside him all along?

Young children and their parents will be amazed by the positive story and exquisite illustrations of this Mom's Choice Awards Gold recipient. Looking for a Leprechaun has been named among the best in family-friendly media, products and services.

I received an advance review book for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Richard Lopez and iRead Book Tours. I'm excited to be a part of this tour!

Looking for a Leprechaun normalizes that we all “feel like we don’t belong” at one time or another as children transitioning from child to adolescent to young adult. I know I did! I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Rich (our main character) and accompanying him on his journey searching for a Leprechaun. The illustrations are gorgeous and bring the characters to life as we traversed the magical forest.

Rich is relatable to young readers as he struggles with many of the same fears’ children experience in general. Many children feel different and insecure. This book leads us through Rich’s journey to figure out where he belongs. On his journey and through a magical fairy, Rich learns about himself, his potential, and perseverance while maintaining his optimism. This story is powerful as its underlying message is that individual uniqueness is of value in today’s world. As a bonus, Rich also learns the value of appreciating his surroundings and seeing the beauty in the environment around us. Acceptance and beauty are everywhere IF we choose to listen to it.

I highly recommend this book to all humans caring for tiny humans. Its positivity and beautiful illustrations will keep your young reader engaged from start to finish. The themes in this book (belonging, confidence, and self-esteem) are important during the early stages of socialization. I also love the “embrace yourself” vibe running through this book!
