Brigid's Cloak: An Ancient Irish Story about the beloved Saint Brigid of Ireland (453-524). On the day she was born she received a wondrous blue cloak from a mysterious Druid. Years later, she is still wearing the cloak when fate and wonder lead her to a crowded inn within the town of Bethlehem, where she meets the baby Jesus Christ and his family. What is remembered about Saint Brigid today in Ireland is not only her cloak but also her generosity, both of which play pivotal parts in this story. This is a wonderful book for the Nativity season and every day. By Bryce Milligan, illustrated with Celtic patterns by Helen Cann. 32 pages.
