Taking a short break form Birth of a Book to post a review of a Board Book you will want to consider to any child under age three.
One Spring Lamb
Written and illustrated by Anne Vittur Kennedy
Tommy Nelson Books
In a board book, it is important that the dogma as well words and pictures are all accessible and fun for the littlest readers. One Spring Lamb scores a five out of five on all fronts. The lamb is appealing without being anthropomorphic. Drawings are cleverly done and the storyline of counting to ten and going through a day with the lamb brings a well thought out repeat appearance of several elements—the children, baskets, eggs. All of the fun elements of the book are tied up in the end with a reminder that all of these elements are gifts from God. And more importantly, that the joy of the holiday comes from knowing Jesus lives and loves the child.
This book will be a wonderful addition to any toddler Easter basket.
