He was an adored son, a handsome young heir, a soldier, and in time, one of the most beloved of all the saints, Francis of Assisi (1182-1226). Here Delphine Pasteau guides readers 9 to 12 through all the important events of Francis's life, including his renunciation of a privileged life to become a penniless man of God and a friend to all living things. Illustrated with sunny paintings by Violaine Costa, this book provides valuable context on medieval world history—knights, the crusades, and the birth of the Franciscan order—and includes a timeline, maps, games, and puzzles.
