Book Signing: Phil Gallery and Sibyl MacKenzie - St. Francis and the Animals: A Mother Bird's Story
On the day of Benjamin Bird's first flight, his mother sits him down to tell him the story of St. Francis Assisi. She tells him to remember every word so he can pass the story on to his own children. Francis was born in Assisi, and throughout his life, he treated his brother and sister creatures with respect. With fantastical illustrations to accompany the text, this book is a wonderful exploration of this saint's life and how we are all connected.
Mother Bird tells her son stories of St. Francis of Assisi.
If the animal kingdom can understand the life and teachings of the world’s most famous saint, so can children, who will be delighted by this simple, beautiful book for the ages.
“Stunning illustrations and engaging text. This book is sure to spark valuable conversations.”
