      One of the most vivid childhood memories is sitting in my parish church, gazing up at a large fresco of the Child Jesus and St Joseph working in their carpentry shop I wondered what the pair discussed amid the rasping of their tools and fragrant wood shavings My childish faith imagination helped me forge a deep bond with the young Jesus and St Joseph which has never left me.The same bond is recreated in Francis Woke Up Early No saint outside of the Bible is as widely known as St Francis of Assis [...]

      Francis Woke Up Early is written by Josephine Nobisso, the author of my favorite Catholic children s book ever The Weight of a Mass In this book, the author imagines what St Francis of Assisi would have been like as a little boy Probably inspired by the tale of Wolf of Gubbio, Francis Woke Up Early tells the tale of a young Francis encountering a she wolf that had been prowling around and threatening the village Using his gifts of love, generosity, and the special bond he has with animals, Franc [...]

      The young St Francis wakes up before anyone else in his house and decides to prepare breakfast himself While he s outside gathering eggs and milk, however, he encounters a hungry wolf.What a lovely book As the author says at the beginning, this book isn t exactly based in fact although we know that St Francis does tame a wolf as an adult, we don t know that he did so as a child In fact, I don t think we know a whole lot about his childhood in general Nevertheless, this is just a lovely, gentle b [...]

      Kindness begins at an early age I would like to think that St Francis is a great example of kindness not only to animals but to all creatures animal and human alike.

    5. Nick on said:

      The artistry involved in this book is amazing, leading the artist on a journey of over twenty years Oddly, though, I didn t find the telling of the story to be as special It is a very simple variant on the kinds of stories which arose surrounding the man most of us know as St Francis of Assissi The author s notes imply that the events in the story stem from a holy aura which is wholly missing from the story In fact, the tale hinges on a very practical response to the idea that the menacing wolf [...]

    6. Barbara on said:

      The author s imagining of what the childhood of the boy who would later become Saint Francis of Assisi makes sense, whether it s true or not When Francis awakens early after staying up late talking about the hungry she wolf who is prowling the town s streets, he leaves the house in order to gather an egg for breakfast Spying the wolf s shadow, he continues his task, and ends up sharing his breakfast with her The wolf never touches a hair on the boy s head, and they make their way home together T [...]

      An imagined story of Francis of Assisi as a boy, which follows his morning adventure of taking care of the family s animals while a hungry wolf lingers nearby It was an enjoyable story, and the pictures were beautiful, but it just seemed to be missing something Part of my problem was that I thought would happen after Francis befriended the wolf one bit of dialog seemed to indicate he would find her to eat, but he didn t That aside, my kids enjoyed reading this several times, especially looking [...]

      This beautifully illuminated book would make a nice gift for a baptism or First Communion It took nearly 20 years to craft the illustrations because the artist took incredible much care in the process I do hope that she has a museum exhibition of the paintings because they must be gorgeous to see in person.

    9. Melody on said:

      I loved the oil paintings that illustrate this slight book The illustrations glow with an inner light, the painter has clearly studied animals and how they move The boy Francis even looks saintly The text, sadly, I found pedestrian at best But do pick it up for the pictures.

    10. Stef on said:

      Little Francis is so cute Perfect book for a little boy just beginning to learn to love the saints.

    11. Mary Lee on said:

      A possible moment from Saint Francis childhood This is how peace begins.

    12. Michelle Gray on said:

      The illustrations are extremely beautiful So realistic looking.
