Young readers, meet Francis of Assisi—the world’s most famous Saint
Travel back in time and over the sea to a city in Umbria in the heart of Italy in 1182. There you’ll meet Francesco Bernardone—better known as Saint Francis of Assisi.
But who was Francis? He was a Saint, that’s for sure—but he was also a soldier and a rebel. He was a man who loved peace and preached to animals but was unafraid to stand up for what was right, take care of lepers, challenge the rich, and defend the poor.
Tim Ladwig’s beautiful illustrations will transport you into Francis’s world and open your eyes and your heart to the inspiring life of the world’s most famous saint.
