Ilene CooperThe story of St. Francis gets a nice treatment in the Saints You Should Know series. Without oversentimentalizing, the authors present a clear, engaging portrait of the beloved saint, who was born into wealth and willingly gave it up to follow his heart and his Lord. Neatly intertwined with Francis' story is a description of the Middle Ages that makes those times seem much closer to today than most histories manage to do. Textured paintings surrounded by borders have a simple charm that works well with both subject and text style.
