Description  more details

Tomie dePaola has been one of our favorite children's book authors since our oldest kids were toddlers.  His gift for storytelling and simple, but truly beautiful artwork have a way of bringing the reader and listener into the experiences of the characters.  You will find many of Tomie dePaola's books at your local library, but his Catholic books are sometimes a little harder to come by.  

Brother Francis of Assisi by Tomie dePaola features stories from the life of Saint Francis as well as Saint Clare, in chronological order. Each 2-page spread contains the story from the life of Saint Francis, with an accompanying illustration.  This would make for a lovely read aloud Catholic book, that could be picked up and read a few pages from each day. 

Brother Francis of Assisi by Tomie dePaola is hardback and 48 pages.  Recommended for ages 5 and up, but the beautiful artwork will appeal to even younger children as part of an introduction to their Catholic faith.
From the publisher: 

A new edition of a beloved book on Brother Francis of Assisi by internationally acclaimed illustrator and author of children's books, Tomie dePaola.

Among his many wonderful books on saints, this one fulfilled his lifelong ambition to bring the story of St. Francis to people of all ages and cultures. Drawing on his extensive artistic background, primary source material, and two trips to Assisi, he has made this dream come true with this volume.

While aimed at children ages 5 and up, it is suitable for all ages, telling the complete story of St. Francis in a simple and powerful style, with so many inspiring details of his humble life.

Illustrated with dePaola's inspiring and delicate artwork in deep earth tones watercolors.
