This is the retelling of one of the legends of St. Brigid of Ireland. And it is wonderfully retold. The story of the young slave girl who must decide between sharing what little she has, or possibly going hungry makes a very hard choice. In part he choice is inspired by a sermon from Bishop Patrick (St. Patrick) preaching on the loaves and the fish.
It is an inspiring story. Every time we read it we end up discussing giving, and giving from what we have. We also talk about sermons and following God's leading no matter the challenge.
The illustrations by April Stott are incredible. My youngest has asked for a framed version of the portrait of St. Brigid from the end of the book. My youngest is constantly carrying this book around and looking at it, and asking someone to read it to her. She just loves the pictures and the story.
My children really love the biography of St. Brigid that is at the end of the book, and also the prayer to Saint Brigid. Overall this is a wonderful book and we highly recommend it.
I can't tell you too much of the story, but I can say that one day when she gladly gave all she had (butter) to a lady who had nothing, God blessed her with twice the amount she'd given.
As the back of the book says, "taking Bishop Patrick's words to heart, she learned that you don't need to have much in order to give." Isn't that the truth?! There is a small bit of history of St. Brigid after the story. She was such a giving Saint. People received many miracles from her. This is such a great book. I promise you won't be disappointed.
As a Catholic Mom and Grandmother, I cherish these books in our Library. Of course we are partly Irish, and so it makes it all the sweeter.
Pauline Books and Media sent me this book to review, but I only give honest reviews. Blessings!
I love when I can read to my children and not only learn something myself but enjoy the journey. The illustrations are endearing and the story well crafted. As a former early educator , I loved the extras included at the end of the book - historical biography page prayer to St Brigid and the steps to make your own butter! The teaching of generosity and trusting in God's providence is so important to instill in children - Brigid and the Butter does that spectacularly well!
The prose of this story flows well, so as you read it aloud to your kids your tongue isn't going to trip over the words. The pictures, too, won't disappoint. Stott adds a graceful touch to these adorable, yet modern, illustrations.
A great picture book to add to your St. Patrick's day collection, Catholic saint collection, or even just your general read aloud collection. It doesn't disappoint.
Note: The publisher sent me a complimentary copy of these books with the hope that I would provide (favorable) reviews. Complimentary books don’t necessarily make good books, though. My opinions are my own.
