Ninny Nanny lives with her Grandmother. Gran isn’t able to do much around the house and Ninny Nanny is lazy. She doesn’t like to fill the rain barrel with water, dig the potatoes, fix the wholes in the roof, or gather sticks for the fire.
Her solution to the growing list of chores is to find a leprechaun’s gold and have the chore issues go away. She accidentally trips over one while searching and catches him. He is supposed to give her his gold. He ends up getting her to do her chores and almost has to give his gold to her. Ninny Nanny ends up not believing the location he tells at the end of his ranting about its final location.
Leprechauns Never Lie is so much fun. JDaniel loved watching Ninny Nanny get tricked and I love the humor in the stories illustrations.
What did we do to explore the book Leprechauns Never Lie?
I put out a number of sensory activities for JDaniel that recreated the chores Ninny Nanny had to do in Leprechauns Never Lie.
Digging Up Potatoes
Twig Transfer Activity
JDanie was asked to move them from one bowl to the next. It was hard to hold the chopsticks tight enough to move the sticks, but he was able to do it.
