A lamb, who has always felt different and sad because of his black spots and his limp, feels his true worth when he is called upon to help keep the baby Jesus warm. The coauthors are Jenna, Andrea, and Sara Lucado.

This inspiring book is about a little lamb who was born crippled, and different compared to the other lambs. He also didn't have a mother and a father. Throughout the story he is left out, lonely, and sad, but his best friend who is an old cow continues to remind him that there is always a special place for the different and unique ones. His special place was to warm and welcome the new king, named Jesus, while the other lambs and sheep were in a new meadow. He realized that his friend was right. This is a beautiful book with a strong message, but it is a little religious, so I am not sure if this could be used in all classrooms. ( )

This book tells the story of a little lamb who is crippled and always left out. He is very sad when one day he has to go back to the stable while the flock goes to another valley. While in the stable, the lamb hears a baby crying and goes to keep the baby warm. This turns out to be baby Jesus that he has the chance to take care of.
Genre: Fantasy
Critique: This book is a good example of fantasy because it tells the story of Jesus' birth through the eyes of a little sheep. The story includes the fantastic elements of a sheep talking and feeling human emotions such as loneliness.

Great Christmas Story! I used to read this every year on Christmas Eve to the gathering of 10 grandchildren at our family Christmas. I could never get through it without crying. So beautiful. ( )

Age appropriateness: Early to late elementary
Review: This book is an example of fantasy. The story is believable and even includes real people such as Mary, Joseph and Jesus, yet it has elements of fantasy such as personified animals. The story tells truths that children are able to relate to and they can feel with the little lame Joshua.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0849910056, Hardcover)

Because Joshua the Lamb was different, he often felt left out-like on the wintry night when he was left behind in a Bethlehem stable. This touching tale helps kids see that even if they're different, God has a unique plan for their lives.
