My 2nd grader's class play was largely based on this book. Costumes, backdrop, and the basic storyline of Francis' father disrespecting a beggar, Francis realizing he loves all creatures form poor people to birds to all animals, and then Francis saving Gubbio from the wolf. The story in the book includes for facets of his life, and much more religion, but is a good introduction to a man kids this age find fascinating.
