A delightful retelling of the life and times of one of history’s most beloved saints, Francis of Assisi (1182-1226). Delphine Pasteau guides young readers through all the important events of Francis’s days, from his birth to his death, and provides valuable context from medieval world history – knights, the crusades, and the birth of the Franciscan order!
Young and middle grade readers will appreciate the rich descriptions of Francis’s beliefs and actions, and the lively accompanying illustrations. A timeline, mini-history lesson with maps on the Crusades, and games and puzzles at the end of the book complete this inspiring piece of Franciscan spirituality and history for kids.
