Little Lamb Finds Christmas – Book Review

Little Lamb Finds Christmas

Christmas is on its way, whether you are ready for it or not! What better way to get your Christmas shopping started than with the purchase of a beautifully illustrated book about the very first Christmas morning of Christ’s birth! This lovely story, written by Catherine C. Gilmore, presents the morning of Christ’s birth from the animals point of view, that of a lamb, but also of a lion. The lamb represents the young and weak of society, and the lion represents the strong and mature; where both come together and recognize the babe as their King and true leader. This is a wonderful story to teach children that we can be different, looking at life differently, yet be united in our love for the Lord.

The illustrations by Kim Wilson are striking and realistic, almost photographic in nature. Ms. Wilson’s illustrative style is quite unique and refreshing, as well as beautiful and compelling. Children of all ages will be drawn into this story because of the illustrations, as all good children’s books should do. Once there, they will be captivated by Catherine C. Gilmore’s telling of the Christmas story from the little lamb’s perspective.

I highly recommend this wonderful book as an excellent Christmas present for the children in your life. It might even make for a great Christmas Eve present to read at bedtime! As a fellow children’s book author, I now look at children’s books with a different eye. I look for high quality, a great story and lively illustrations. You will find all of these qualities in this book and much more. This book gets five stars from me!
