The Crippled Lamb by Max Lucado with Jenna, Andrea, & Sara Lucado (Illustrated by Liz Bonham)

Recommended for ages 4 to 8, but the story will touch the hearts of “children” of all ages (4 to 108 years).

Inside book jacket:

Joshua, the black and white spotted lamb, longed to be like the other lambs. He wondered why he had to limp along with a crippled leg, instead of running and playing in the meadow.

Because Joshua the lamb was different, he often felt left out. Yet God had a very special plan for his life, as He does for all who feel alone. Joshua not only witnessed the greatest event in history, he was able to give the newborn King the one thing He needed most.

Lucado was joined by his daughters to write his most touching children’s story yet.

This beautiful story along with its touching illustrations helps the reader realize that God has a plan for each of our lives even if it isn’t exactly what we may have hoped. This book helps us understand that God’s ways are higher than our own and His hopes for us are bigger and better than anything we could ever dream.
