This delightfully illustrated biography leads young readers ages 7-10 to identify with the adventures and challenges that molded Pope Francis-the first pope to be a member of the Jesuit religious order, to come from Latin America, and to take the papal name in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi-into a missionary of Gods unconditional love. Known for his humility, simplicity, concern for the poor, respect for the environment, and commitment to interfaith dialogue, Pope Francis is a positive role model and contemporary hero for all children.
