Brigid's Cloak enriches the understanding of one the life of one of Ireland's patron saints. Bryce Milligan retells her story starting at her birth in 450 AD. The story revolves around Brigid's mysterious blue cloak given to her by a Druid priest when she was born. The Druid priest recognizes Brigid is born for great leadership and says, "She is the mother of a new Ireland that is to come." The luxurious watercolor illustrations in Brigid's Cloak,by Helen Cann, spark the imagination and bring the story of this beloved Irish saint to life.

Children ages 5 to 8 years old enjoy Brigid's Cloak, but adults love it, too. As the story unfolds and Brigid is shown wearing her tattered cloak while tending the sheep, she has a mystical experience. She finds herself in a dream or does she simply imagine herself in the crowded Inn at Bethlehem? Her story is one of compassion and delight and children get to determine if she was actually dreaming...or was she truly where Christ was born? Brigid's Cloak makes a great gift to introduce youngsters to the rich spiritual legacy of the Emerald Isle.
