An entertaining way to teach children about the adventurous life of St. Francis
Ideal for home or classroom use
Portrayed in an animated cartoon format
It was the age of knights and kings, when honor belonged to the heroes and glory was found in the battle field. There lived a brave young man named Francis, who wish was to become a mighty warrior and conquer a magnificent castle. One day Francis felt a calling to greater glory. God had vested upon him a very special mission that would require a supreme act of courage. For the love of God, his King, Francis gave up all that he had and joyfully embarked upon the most exciting and unexpected adventure.
The mom of our godson suggested the CCC videos about the saints. They are pleased with that line of videos and own other saints which they are happy with. So we found this one as a First Communion gift which he didn't have. He was excited.
Kids loved "Francis - Knight of Assisi"
