Adventures in Assisi: On the Path with St. Francis

$ 15.99


Two cousins, Gianna and Lorenzo, are left in the care of their great uncle, Brother Antonio, a Franciscan friar living in Assisi, for the day while their parents visit a winery. Neither cousin wants to be with the other, and the day threatens to turn into a fiasco until Brother Antonio comes up with a game for them to play: They will discover the places where St. Francis lived and worked.

Children will learn about both St. Francis and Assisi in this lovely tale for children ages 5-8, illustrated with the warmth and colors of the Italian countryside. As Gianna and Lorenzo lose themselves in the game, they come to better understand the qualities that marked St. Francis: humility, gentleness, kindness, simplicity, and love. In turn, the cousin’ s relationship is mended as they come to see the good in each other.
