What I Like: This sort of simple book is good for teaching basic concepts, and while the illustrations aren't nearly so colorful and interesting as Sandra Boynton's, they are still attractive.
What I Dislike: The point of this book is unclear. Are the sheep trying to learn to please God? It will also be the rare young child who understands without an adult's explanation that the picture of a Bible-era man with a shepherd's hook on the last page is supposed to represent Jesus.
Overall Rating: Good.
Age Appeal: Baby to preschool.
