Celtic Saints! February bed time book list

  Two good books I recommend for Irish Saints are Holy Crocodile and Wisdom of the Celtic Saints
 The blog for the author, Caroline Cory, of Holy Crocodile is here. She pretty much shows you all her illustrations on that blog and it's very very good if you want a preview. There is also an audio link  to a book Dessi wrote on a famous Celtic Saint down there St. Mudomnoc. We also like Fin McCoul- he's a great legend for kids. Also Neumann Press has a nice book about St. Colum and St Brigid.  They were on sale on Amazon for really really cheap last week. I had a post about it, but the html code wouldn't display for some reason. Also there is the tradition with St. Brigid's feast day you can read about here.

My sister has been hosting a St. Patrick's day dinner for the last two or three years, and our family always attends the parade together. Here's my daughter and son dressed up as St. Brigid and St. Patrick for the Saint Patrick's day Parade last year.
