I love this book!!! The funny thing is that as soon as I opened the parcel I giggled. Mostly because I have a brother Dave!! And then as I read the book, it sounded so much like a story my brother would tell and the way he would tell it. And I could hear the voice of my Grandfather with those parts!!!
Another great thing about this book are the resources you can get through the Lost Sheep website (some free, some requiring you to buy them) that go along with this and the other books in the series.
I'm planning to read this on Easter Sunday to the 2-5 year olds in crèche! I can't wait for their reaction!!
