A New Francis Book for Children

The well-know Catholic author and blogger, Amy Welborn, was kind enough to arrange for me to receive a copy of her new book Adventures in Assisi, from Franciscan Media Publications. The book is lavishly illustrated with water-color images by Ann Kissane Engelhart.

The narrative tells the story of two children, who visit their great uncle, Padre Antonio, a Franciscan friar. As he takes them around Assisi, they come to know the Little Poor Man and his city.

This is a marvelous way to introduce your children to St. Francis and spend some time reading to them. I think they will love both the story and the pictures. This book can be ordered on Amazon or at your local bookstore.
