Cathy Gilmore’s newly released children’s book Little Lamb Finds Christmas touches the heart and helps children (and adults) focus on the deepest meaning of Christmas.
Following Lemi, the “little lamb,” through his troubles, the reader witnesses moments of physical challenges, loneliness, fear, and confusion. However, the story beautifully counters these troubles with strength, companionship, faith, and miracles. As Gilmore has said, “Lemi is an ‘everylamb’ like all of us.” We struggle again and again in countless ways, but through it all Jesus is our “forever Shepherd,” and we “belong to a King”!
Illustrator Kim Wilson delivers a visual feast with her display of realistic images, texture, and color. Her artwork mirrors the unique mixture of simplicity and depth of Faith. My favorite image is when Lemi bleats a “soft hello to the little King”…the hay beneath Jesus is dry, scratchy, and harsh, but He is comfortable in his soft swaddling cloths and so close to Lemi’s soft, warm fleece.
