This book was a great read, and it was extremely easy to follow. It was about a young farmer kidnapped and sold as a slave. In his time of slavery he prayed to god, and found god within him. This book would be a great teaching example for morals. ( )

This book talks about Saint Patrick and the struggles that he endured being sold into slavery and how he escaped by the power of God.

Fun retelling of the story behind St. Patrick's Day. My kids and I enjoyed reading it together. ( )

I think this again was a very easy book to understand. The best part was at at the end of the book they gave different variations of stories and miracles that Patrick had done in his life and why he was known for them. Although I think the book is great I am still puzzled at how I would approach this in a classroom at a public school. ( )

Great to have in a situation where religious overtones are acceptable. Tomie dePaola embraces his Irish roots in this one (as opposed to his Italian roots in some of his other books). ( )
