Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Life of St. Patrick This is a wonderful book that depicts the life of St. Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland. Tomie dePaola does an excellent job of depicting the life of St. Patrick. His pictures illustrate the life of this saint from his days of slavery to his days as a priest teaching Christianity to the people of Ireland. My children enjoy this book very much. They especially like the many legends about St. Patrick that the author describes in his book.
