One Lost Sheep written by Rhonda Gowler Greene and illustrated by Margaret Spengler

One lost Sheep, which is written by Rhonda Gowler Greene and illustrated by Margaret Spengler is a beautiful picture book sure to cause delight in any child's heart! The rhyming flow is great for little ones, to keep them engaged and interested in the book. The bright, beautiful pictures are perfect for young eyes! 
“Ninety-eight…ninety-nine…” The faithful shepherd realizes that one of his one hundred sheep is missing and sets out to find it. In playful rhyme, prolific author Rhonda Gowler Greene retells Jesus’ parable of the lost sheep that loses its way on the mountain side. Under brambles, behind rocks, the shepherd looks until he finds it again. Children will delight in this fun and engaging tale illustrated by Margaret Spengler as they learn that God, like the faithful shepherd, will never let them stray."
Of course, both of my boys ages 6 and 14 months love this book! This is a classic bible story told to children across the ages, and it has never been told better than One Lost Sheep by Rhonda Gowler Greene! I personally love the rhyme of the book, and my boys hung on every word! Even my busy toddler sat through most of the book. It is definitely an asset to our picture book collection!
