About this Book:

Brigid is captivated by the story Bishop Patrick tells her village about Jesus feeding many hungry people with five loaves and two fishes. She wants to feed many hungry people, but she is often hungry herself. She and her mother work hard each day on their master's farm. Many days they have only bread and butter for dinner. When a beggar woman asks for the only food Brigid has-a dish of butter-she knows she can feed the person in front of her and opens her heart with generosity and love like Jesus.

Mary Watches says...
I found Brigid and the Butter to be a charming story about sharing and caring. Brigid gives away her only food to feed the hungry. I think this story is an excellent way to show children how to put others before themselves. The book is informative and beautifully illustrated.

M. Ellerbrock says...
Engaging story. As a young girl, Brigid feels a need to feed the hungry. Her life in 5th century Ireland is not an easy one, and Brigid and her mother are often hungry themselves. In Brigid and the Butter: A Legend about Saint Brigid of Ireland, Pamela Love retells the story of Brigid’s encounter with a beggar woman. Apryl Stott’s illustrations will appeal to readers as they read about Brigid’s first miracle. The text and illustrations work together as a beautiful way to tell the gentle story of Brigid’s early life. Further information about Saint Brigid and a prayer to her round out this inviting look at her life. Pauline Books and Media provided me with a free copy of Brigid and the Butter in exchange for an honest review.
