The inspiring story that has encouraged thousands of children who have felt left out or who have special needs.
In this timeless bestseller, readers experience the tender love God has for those who feel alone and different. Joshua was a lamb with a crippled leg who felt left out because he couldn't run and play like the other lambs. But God had a very special plan for Joshua's life, as He does for all who feel alone. Readers can expect a gentle tug on their hearts as the little lamb's prayers are answered in an amazing way. Original oil-painting illustrations by Liz Bonham brilliantly capture the beauty and warmth of this endearing story.
