Reviews - What do customers think about I WonderDid Jesus Have a Pet Lamb??
Great book for children wondering what Jesus did their age. Aug 23, 2007
The pages were large enough for reading to a preschool class, colorful, cute. And also a good starting to think about Jesus place for children. I actually bought it to add to a buyer's gift at the FFA Auction where my daughter recently had her lamb up for auction. I was hoping the buyer would have a change of heart and keep "Bella" (her lamb) for a pet!!!
