Staff Review: "Dear Pope Francis" by Pope Francis


This book is a delightful and refreshingly candid look at Pope Francis and the children from around the world who had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to write a letter and ask the leader of the Catholic Church any questions they wished. The questions they ask are honest, surprising, and ones that people of all ages would be interested in hearing his answer. Questions range from those of faith--why there are not any more miracles and do bad people have guardian angels, to more personal ones--what makes him happy and did he like dancing as a child. Accompanying the letters are color pictures drawn by the children, often including the questions written by them in their own language, and of course his answer. This heart-warming book is sure to delight readers of all ages and all faiths. You may even find yourself smiling and wondering what questions you might ask if you had an opportunity.
