    This beautifully designed storybook tells readers a lovely tale about the Irish lass that would grow up to be StBrigid I told the story using the pictures than the text

    This is one of my favorite books about a saint It manages to tell the rather fantastical story in a way that seems true enough and keeps the attention even of the littlest listeners I was most impressed by the inclusion of the Druid's blessing at the beginning of the story A good saint tale that doesn't whitewash the sense of myth out of the retelling


  3. Abigail Abigail says:

    This beautifully illustrated retelling of an ancient folktale concerning Saint Brigid of Kildare one of Ireland's patron saints contains a fascinating blend of Pagan Celtic and early Christian motifs From the old Druid who gives the infant Brigid a beautiful blue cloak and who speaks with a voice wise and fierce and full of truth; to the Holy Family in Bethlehem who somehow seem to exist outside of time and know Brigid for who she is a child of the West; this story has just the right mixture of magic and spirituality to appeal to young readers whatever their religious persuasion The color illustrations by English artist Helen Cann are vibrant and appealing I was pleased over to see the the explanatory notes in the back giving some historical background to the story


  4. Martin Martin says:

    This is a sweetly told and beautifully illustrated legend from the childhood of St Brigid of Ireland whose stories create a bridge between the Old Ways and the Christianity that was newly arriving in Ireland when she lived In the book we see a Druid treated with respect and reverence as a divine messenger and also see 10 year old Brigid magically transported in time to witness and assist at the birth of Jesus For those interested in bridging these traditions in our own families this is a great resource

    I read this with my 4th graders for St Patick's Dayit was on a suggested March list However it would have been much better as a Christmas read It is Irish but other than that it is mostly Christmas It fit in well with our reads about St Valentine and St Patrick It is uite religious as a heads up It led to great discussions I don't know if I will do it again though I wasn't in love with the illustrations I wouldn't attempt it whole group lower than 4th grade

    Summary The story of Brigid and her cloakWhy Did I Read This It appeared on a list of recommended books for February as Brigid's Feast Day is February 1Review I liked this book I do not really know anything about St Brigid except that she's from Ireland This was a simple legend that helped me get to know her within an engaging story

    45We enjoyed the story but didn't uite understand the meaning of what made Brigid so special? Or why she had to travel back in time when the story was already known Different than the story I heard growing up But illustrations were excellent and was an enjoyable story overall My kids rated it
