My First Bible Stories (Stories Jesus Told): The Lost Sheep by Su Box

The story of The Lost Sheep conveys the Christian belief that however lost and insignificant you may feel, God loves you. It is the story of the shepherd who leaves his flock of sheep to rescue a lone animal who is lost and who wants to be found. It's a tale of redemption which celebrates those who admit their wrongdoing and want to be forgiven. This book relates one of parables from the New Testament, retold simply and clearly, ensuring it's the perfect first introduction for young children to Jesus' much-loved stories.Beautifully illustrated, the picture book approach means the story can be read to the child but can also be enjoyed by children on their own as their reading skills develop. Next steps at the back of the book encourage further discussion and there's a rhyme for children to join in with and lots to spot.
