Join Peg Patrick as he travels around Ireland in the footsteps of Saint Patrick. In this unique and meticulously researched book, children will be introduced to the true story of St. Patrick and the ancient sites where he lived and preached. A geotagged pilgrimage guide and instructions for making your own ‘Peg Patrick’ round out this innovative book that brings the story of St. Patrick to life.
Depending on your beliefs, you might want to take the assertation that this book is a “true story” with a grain of salt…
On the other hand, with St Patrick’s Day coming up tomorrow, how could I not review the story of Saint Patrick the Wooden Peg! What an absurd concept for a book, but a clever one.
Aimed at children (obviously), you get quite a lot of information mixed in with the religion, and the book finishes with a map and coordinates so readers can look up the real locations mentioned once they’ve finished reading.
Better than I expected.
