The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based list of titles available only on-line. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

"I Am of Ireland": Books About the Irish and Irish Americans
--selected by Jeannette Hulick

Over the last decade, Irish music, dance, and culture have enjoyed a huge resurgence in popularity, thanks in part to "Riverdance" and Enya. Happily, this Celtic tide has also found its way into literature for children and young adults, and this month we are pleased to offer you a dozen books about the Irish people, both in Ireland and America. If you're looking for something fresh for your March displays and storytimes, try a few of the following recent titles and give your kids a different picture of what it means to be "of Ireland."
