Gianna and Lorenzo are in Assisi for the day, in the care of their great uncle, Brother Antonio, while their parents visit a winery. At first, the children are not happy about being there, but Brother Antonio saves the day with a fun way to show the children around and teach them about the life of St. Francis. Illustrated by lush scenes of the Italian town of Assisi, this delightful tale blends history, geography, and the life of one of our most beloved saints into an appealing and faith-filled adventure for the children.
