Seton's Description:
New! Francis of Assisi, one of the most famous and beloved saints, comes to life for young people in this addition to The Life of a Saint series. With vivid, four-color pictures on every page, the book shows Francis becoming a brother and friend to all- lepers, the poor, and animals too.

The story begins with the saint's birth and joyful youth. After military service, imprisonment, and illness, Francis has a dramatic encounter with God. He then gives up everything - even the clothes on his back - in order to follow Jesus in poverty and humility.

Among the episodes in the life of Francis are the taming of the wolf of Gubbio and the first living Nativity scene. Also included is the conversion of Saint Clare, who was inspired by Francis to leave her life of luxury in order to give herself completely to the love of God.

The simple but engaging text can be read independently by young readers or read aloud to small children. Illustrated. Full Color. Hardcover. 32pp.

This book is one of many in The Life of a Saint series.
