"I've read this aloud to my children twice and have been charmed each time. Two children, Michael and Cecilia, are being prepared for First Holy Communion by dear elderly Miss Murphy. Miss Murphy loves the children, but is plagued by their question. She prays to St. Patrick for help, and he does in a very literal way. Appearing to the children, bringing them visitors such as Eve and Abraham, and showing them scenes from the life of Our Lord, he "magically" teaches them the elements of the Catholic faith which they need to know to be ready for First Communion. This is such a beautiful way to share the faith with a child with the added bonus of a Catholic history lesson at the end. I highly recommend this book. Though written in 1950, St. Patrick's Summer is an enjoyable read for children of today and a fresh reminder of a world without computers, cell phones, and most modern conveniences. " said.

" It was an entertaining read while discussing Catholic teachings. " said.

" Reading aloud as a family in the evening before prayers. So glad it confronted the shamrock-Trinity thing head-on at the beginning! " said.
