Includes a timeline of John F. Kennedy's 1963 visit to Ireland.
Summary When the beloved president visited Ireland in 1963, he described it as the best four days of his life. And for a generation of Irish people, it was a trip they never forgot. This picture book captures the fevered excitement in the buildup to the president's visit, all seen through the eyes of a young boy named Patrick who wants to know more than anything what it would feel like to shake the president's hand.
