Lost and Found, Parables Jesus Told
by Mary Hoffman
Illustrated by Jackie Morris
This British book is now available in the US. Beautifully illustrated, it tells the stories of 8 parables from Matthew and Luke. The stories are told in an easy narrative style that is suitable for young readers while still retaining the sense that a deeper meaning lies within. There is a small amount of commentary for each parable, just a paragraph or two, which sparks further discussion on what the stories might mean. This book would be an excellent gift for children, or anyone who likes good stories and vivid, expressive illustrations.
