The Pope (for kids)
Number of pages: 32
Follow the journey of the Pope from Bergoglio to Francis.
Before he was Pope Francis, Jorge Mario Bergoglio was a young boy living in Buenos Aires with his siblings. He was polite and hard working, enjoyed studying chemistry at school and played football with his friends.
The Pope traces his journey from childhood to the present day. Straightforward and helpful, the book includes fact boxes on each page to explain tough concepts: who the Jesuits are, what Argentina’s “dirty war” was about and what all the different roles in the Church mean. With photographs and a glossary of key terms, this book is ideal for kids from the ages of 8 to 11—for a school project, a Sunday session or simply reading in bed at home.
