Genre: Children's Picture Book
Classic Bible story with vibrant art and lyrical rhyming text from established and successful author Rhonda Gowler Greene.
“Ninety-eight…ninety-nine…” The faithful shepherd realizes that one of his one hundred sheep is missing and sets out to find it. In playful rhyme, prolific author Rhonda Gowler Greene retells Jesus’ parable of the lost sheep that loses its way on the mountain side. Under brambles, behind rocks, the shepherd looks until he finds it again. Children will delight in this fun and engaging tale illustrated by Margaret Spengler as they learn that God, like the faithful shepherd, will never let them stray.
This beautifully illustrated book will help teach children the well know parable of the lost sheep and how each and every one of us is important to God. They rhythm, almost song like, makes it fun and easy to read out loud. I loved that each page only has a sentence or two and makes it easy for young kids to follow the story. Kids of all ages will love the pictures. This will make a great book to add to any child's library.
