As a young man, Francis of Assisi renounced his wealthy background, dressed in coarse robes, and lived in poverty. He believed every living creature and thing on earth was sacred and deserved respect, and in this spirit, he founded the Franciscan Order, which endures today. Introducing readers 4 to 8 to a pivotal figure in Christian history, Géraldine Elschner also incorporates quotes by Pope Francis, and this story is illustrated with gorgeous reproductions of Italian frescoes.
