It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!

You never know when I might play a wild card on you!

Today's Wild Card author is:

Andrew McDonough

Jesus and the Children

Zondervan (January 15, 2010)

***Special thanks to Pam Mettler of Zondervan for sending me a review copy.***


Andrew is the creator, writer, and illustrator of the Lost Sheep series. Way back in 1989 as a young Bible college student, Andrew was asked to give the dreaded “children’s talk” at a large church. Andrew possessed one talent: he could draw sheep. He bought some overhead projector sheets and drew up the story of Cecil and the Lost Sheep. T he congregation loved it, so Andrew continued to draw stories to use with kids and adults. Other students, pastors, and teachers started borrowing the stories.

My Review: This is a modern day children's story of the children coming to Jesus and the disciples shooing them away. It is a really great book, and once again reinforces that children are important to Jesus. I highly recommend this book!

Due to spam all COMMENTS will need to be approved!

Sorry gang! I keep getting spammed by these knucklehead Japanese spammers and I just don't have time to keep dealing with their ridiculousness so from now on until they get the HINT I will approve all comments hopefully I'll be able to go back to not doing that but for awhile I'll need to. Thanks for your understanding and your loyalty!

Hugs, Andi
