For our readers looking for great Christian reads for their kids this is one your kids are going to love… It is a brand new book from Day One Publications and part of the Faith Finders Series, and is a story that will appeal to primary school age children.
The story begins with a young boy, Ben, running as fast as he can from a group of bullies. And then you realise that times haven’t change and this is a boy in Roman times. Yes a “back in time” story and my kids love those!!! Ben comes from a long line of shepherds and his grandfather was there the night the angels appeared to the shepherds out in the field. Ben’s father comes home from the fields after a long time away and brings him a lamb to raise. Two stories intertwine through the book, the story of Ben and his lamb and the memoir his Grandfather shares about the birth of Jesus, the Lamb of God.
Ben and his family’s lives interweave with Jesus’s life, and brings the stories from the Bible to life for the young reader. He finally realises that his lamb has been raised for the Passover Sacrifice. One day in the market place Ben gets to hear Jesus tell the story of the missing sheep… and he is relieved that this man understands his love of the lamb. Around the time that Ben’s lamb is taken for a Passover sacrifice the neighbour comes over to tell the family about Jesus’ arrest. But that is not at all where the story ends…
This is a great read, a beginner chapter book. As it races along, you want to know what is happening in each story. I think all my reading kids would enjoy this one, especially our middle boys Hoods 4 and 5, I know they would love to read more about life during Bible times and more about the person of Jesus at the same time.
