The Shepherd and the Sheep is a lift-the-flap book for little children. The shepherd had 100 sheep and one day he found one sheep was missing. He went out to find it. He searched everywhere. He even searched a house and a boat.

Using bright colors, adorable pictures and a flap to search for the lost sheep the book teaches little children how much the shepard loves and care for his sheep. Jesus is the Good Shepherd and he cares for us, his sheep.

This is a wonderful children’s book that will encourage children to interact with the story as they learn how much God loves them. The story is short and easy to read for the young reader and the perfect size for reading to an active toddler. The book is a shiny, hard covered book that will hold up to little one’s sticky finger and the pages are durable weight folding pages. The pictures are so adorable, I just want to take dog and cuddle with him. Each page also included a rabbit and a little mouse that children will enjoy looking for. The little child will have many enjoyable hours looking behind the flap checking to see what is behind it. The book has parts of 3 different bible stories within the main story. Priced at just $4.99, this is the perfect book to give as a gift to a young child. This would make a perfect Valentine’s Day gift with the hearts on the cover and the theme of love.

Lots of Love by Kim Washburn

_140_245_book-2115-cover

I climb in bed for tuck-in. This day has been the best. I got love and I gave it too, and now it’s time to rest.”

Lots of Love by Kim Washburn is a hard covered, board book that follows a young girl from when she wakes up Valentine’s morning through her day. She spends time playing with a little dog and snuggling with her mommy. He daddy takes her to school where she helps clean up, spends time with her friends, and makes a glittery heart that she gives her teacher. When she gets home she tells her family she loves them.

This is a very cute Valentine’s Day story for the preschooler and young reader. I like how the story follows this little girl through her day as she helps others, gives and receives love from her family, friends and teacher.As well as how it explains that God is who gives us what we have and how much he loves us.

Being a board book, this is a very durable book for the younger child but an older child may find this a little childish.The pages are brightly colored pictures of children, animals and adults in varying scenes such as out doors, in school and at home. The story is written in rhyme and teaches those reading and listening to the book about the love shared between family and friends. This is the perfect book to spend time snuggling and reading with a younger child.

I received a copy of this book from BookLook Bloggers and this is my honest review.
