A Father Attests To Sheep & Goat Value
"My daughter has hundreds of books she can choose from, but there are two that are her favorites. One is a pocket sized Bible, and the other is the Sheep & Goat book. Every time I read her the Sheep & Goat book I get chills as the story is moving and I know God is working through this book," writes Will Turner, a young father practicing his faith in the Evangelical Free Church.
A Family Endorses Sheep & Goat
"We love the book (Sheep & Goat)!!!! We read it at supper, and the kids had us read it over. The kids loved Sheep and Sheep's friend PIG, and we asked them if they had any PIG friends and if they are a PIG to their friends. (PIG, Sheep's friend, is also an acronym for Partner In Godliness).
They also talked about how they can help people daily. What a great book!!!!!!
We hope there are more books like this in the works. We want to send some to our nieces and nephews. What a great message, and it was done in a way the kids loved," writes the Neeley family from Lincoln, practicing their faith in the Catholic Church.
Archdiocese Of Omaha Chancellor Endorses Sheep & Goat
"GIFT's Sheep & Goat is an inspirational tale that teaches young people the value of generosity and stewardship. It helps the young reader to appreciate the parable Jesus himself taught in the gospel of St. Matthew, chapter 25. May we all strive to be like the sheep!" writes Reverend Joseph C. Taphorn, Chancellor.
Bookstores & Teachers Endorse Sheep & Goat
1.) "Thanks for bringing the Sheep & Goat book to our Bookshop for examination. It's a delightful children's book that I am sure will have wide appeal to children. Our young people need books of this type with a strong message of God's love for us.
As a former teacher I know children will enjoy the text and the pictures while learning an important lesson. It would be a positive addition in any classroom as well as any home. The Dedication included in the book lists only some of the positive lessons that can be stressed after reading the book. We would certainly carry it in our Bookshop.
We shall encourage teachers to use it in classrooms as well as in homes," writes Mariann Kozisek, Christ the King Bookshop.
2.) "I have reviewed Sheep & Goat Go To The Ice Cream Parlor and this is a title we would gladly stock in our stores," writes Tim Brox, Gloria Deo Bookstores.
Sheep & Goat Was A Smash Hit at VBS
I also wanted to express our thanks for reading the Sheep and Goat book to our children at our Vacation Bible School Program.
The story of the Sheep and Goat was enjoyed by all ages. Our children enjoyed the story and truly were able to apply the message quickly and easily!
It was wonderful having a story that really spoke to today's children in ways they could understand and easily apply to their lives.The story wonderfully summed up God's desire for his children in how they should treat each other, and is a great addition to any Vacation Bible Study program or any Christian children's curriculum.
The range of our children was 5 - 15 and from the youngest to the oldest, the message was clear and easy to understand!
The Sheep and the Goat book was truly a highlight of our VBS program! Brenda Falusi, Director VBS
