A picture book to share with children ages 3-9
Saint Francis of Assisi is a holy man revered by people of many religions. Of the many ways in which he lived his spirituality, Francis is perhaps best remembered by children for his love of animals. This book is filled with many tales of his rapport with birds: doves, larks, falcons, swallows and others.
