"L" is for "Little Shepherd" and "Lightning Strikes"


Author: Cheryl C. Mandrinos

In the hills outside Bethlehem, Obed guards his first flock of sheep. When the angels appear to tell of the Savior’s birth, he is hesitant to follow the others to see the new King. When Obed returns to his sheep, he realizes it is a night of miracles.

“Lightning Strikes, I count to ten. I don’t hear thunder until then.” Science and Math come together to educate and entertain. This fun, rhyming counting book will help teach children to count backwards, and to understand the principles of lightning and thunder.

Little Shepard looks like an interesting approach to the Christmas story.
Lightning Strikes is great for teaching children about lighting and numbers.

Little Shepherd is a wonderful book! I haven't read Lightning Strikes, but it looks like it would be fun to read.
