A very special story, yet a bit repetitive in message, unlike most others Mark Hamby publishes. I was particularly dream to the letter of the abandoned son from his adoptive father, which is exactly what I would like for my children to hear from me when they go out into the world.

We gave this book to Ellie for Easter. Daddy is going to read this to her before bedtime.

Dad and Ellie have been taking a break from reading this book. Will start the book over during the summer and read with Jacob also..6/4/15

There are actually two stories within this one book. The first, The Little Lamb, is a wonderful story that teaches the importance of following God's laws even in the smallest of things. For even the smallest obedience or act can lead to the greatest rewards. And how every action, no matter how small, can have a great effect on others or even your own life.

The second story, much shorter, is The Redbreast. Through the honesty of a little boy, rewards are brought upon him and his grandfather.

A good if a bit "preachy" story about the providence of God. Recommended.

It was a cute little book. Just rip out the last pages of the book when the preacher starts preaching, I'm sure you'll have the book figured out by then. There is a wonderful letter that the adopted father wrote to his son.

This story is very sweet and wholesome for younger readers, but is too disjointed and coincidental to be considered well-written. With that said, the morals are excellent, and the lessons are infinite.

A very sweet old fashioned book that upholds love for God, honesty, industriousness and unselfishness.
