I recently had the pleasure of reading Twenty Tales of Irish Saints by Alice Curtayne. This book is a lovely collection of legends about some of Ireland’s saints.
I found all of the tales to be well written and quite delightful. My nine year old daughter has been enjoying reading about Ireland’s saints. She’s used to reading books about saints that are a bit more dry, so she was surprised at the lighter tone of this book. Of course, just because this book is fun doesn’t mean your child won’t be learning about the saints. Children who read these stories will still learn what makes these twenty saints so special and how they chose to serve our Lord.
