I would use this as an independent read for 2nd or 3rd grade. I would use this as an independent read because not all students will be interested in learning about St. Francis, unless it is in a Catholic School setting. I would use this in 2nd and 3rd grade because it is an easy read and they will be able to understand the language better than students in younger grades. ( )

Illustrations clearly inspired by the Giotto frescoes in the Basilica of St Francis at Assisi. Beautiful. ( )

Focuses on the earlly years of Francis of Assisi, who sought communion with the natural world by renouncing his family's riches to seek his own destiny unencumbered by material possessions. Francis was, in a sense, history's first 'drop-out'; he left a life of comfort to seek a spiritual union with the world. Academy Award-nominated.

Book description
"Saint Francis of Assisi has always held a fascination for members of all faiths, and his story continues to inspire and motivate us more than seven hundred years after his death. Born into a wealthy family, he led a dissolute life as a young man. Then one day he had a conversion experience while passing a poor leper's hut. From that day on, Francis dedicated his life to helping the poor and outcasts of society and to teaching respect for all living things. He was joined by a noblewoman, Clare, who was soon known as Sister Moon to Francis's Brother Sun. This appealing book includes many of the tales that were told about him, including his taming of the fierce wolf Gubbio and the famous prayer that begins, "Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace." With its charming text and glowing illustrations, this is a book to give, to keep, to cherish."
