Andrew is the creator, writer, and illustrator of the Lost Sheep series. Way back in 1989 as a young Bible college student, Andrew was asked to give the dreaded “children’s talk” at a large church. Andrew possessed one talent: he could draw sheep. He bought some overhead projector sheets and drew up the story of Cecil and the Lost Sheep. T he congregation loved it, so Andrew continued to draw stories to use with kids and adults. Other students, pastors, and teachers started borrowing the stories.

My Review:
An adorable children’s book! This book was wonderful & the pictures went well with the story. This storybook teaches children that they, too, are a part of His kingdom and deserve His love, too. It also teaches grown ups that they should share of God’s love and goodness with the little ones. Definitely reminds me of the saying “faith like a child”! My 6 and almost 8 year old adored this book when I read it to them!

I highly recommend this storybook with 5 stars. It is a perfect Sunday school lesson for children (as well as adults!) and would make a good book  for a child’s book collection to be read again and again!
