About this item

Pope Francis's life and ground-breaking leadership are brought to life for young readers in this lyrical and inspirational picture book biography. Spanish language edition.

Jorge Bergoglio was a typical boy growing up in Buenos Aires, Argentina, jumping into pick-up soccer games and listening to lively music on the city streets. His grandma Rosa taught him the importance of doing good and inspired his passion to help others. This passion and years of hard work led him to become a Jesuit priest, a bishop, and then a cardinal.

And now the world knows Jorge by a different name--Pope Francis.

As the leader of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis has focused on another word for pope: "pontiff," a person who builds bridges to reach everyone, no matter who they are. Speaking out on the most important issues of our time, he has become an influential voice in our world--a true pontiff, a builder of bridges.

This story of how an ordinary boy became a beloved world leader will inspire and inform readers of all ages.

Jorge Bergoglio era un típico chico de Buenos Aires, Argentina, que jugaba picaditos de fútbol y escuchaba música alegre en las calles de su ciudad. Su abuela Rosa le enseñó la importancia de hacer el bien e inspiró su pasión por ayudar a otros. Esta pasión y años de esfuerzo lo llevaron a convertirse en un sacerdote jesuita, en un obispo y, luego, en un cardenal.

Y ahora el mundo conoce a Jorge con un nombre diferente: papa Francisco.

Como líder de la Iglesia católica romana, el papa Francisco se ha enfocado en la otra palabra para 'papa', 'pontífice': una persona que crea puentes para llegar a todos, sin importar quiénes sean. Expresándose sobre los asuntos más importantes de nuestro tiempo, se ha convertido en una influyente voz en nuestro mundo, en un verdadero pontífice: un creador de puentes.

Esta historia de cómo un chico común se convirtió en un líder mundial inspirará e informará a lectores de todas las edades.
