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.
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.
This was a sweet book that taught about having faith and being rewarded.
