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.

Tim Ladwig is an accomplished painter and is experienced in Christian ministry. He has illustrated more than twenty picture books, including many award-winners such as Psalm Twenty-Three, The Lord’s Prayer, and Good King Wenceslas. He is married to Leah. They live in Wichita, Kansas, and have three grown children.

"This  brisk  early  reader  introduces  youngsters  to  a  saint  beloved  for  his  care  for  all  of  Earth’s  fauna.  It  moves  in  the  style  of  fairy  tales and parables, dropping bits of medieval and religious history here  and  there  as  it  follows  Francis  from  his  spirited  childhood  play  toward  his  coming-of-age,  which  was  marked  by  concern  for the poor and the ill. It covers the hardships he faced, and his monastic  work,  too.  Delicate  watercolor  illustrations  illuminate  almost every page of this excellent inspirational biography." —Foreword Review of Books
