ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
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.

What an awesome way to share God's word with children! This is based on the story in Mark10-13:16. I loved the simplicity of the writing and the artwork was so cute. My kids really liked it!
At the end of the book, you have what is called Cecil's Page which give parents a guide full of questions to help their children understand the story. It's nice because sometimes it's hard to explain to children the who's and why's. This makes it easier.
