The Lost Son is a kid-friendly version of the Prodigal son story. In this story, the prodigal sons name is Jack. Like the Bible story, Jack gets fed up with all the work there is to be done on the family farm. He wants to go out in the world to seek his fortune. His father gives him his inheritance and Jack sets off on his own. Of course, he loses everything and comes back to his father, hoping his father will at least let him work on the farm for food. His father does much more than that; he welcomes his son back with open arms.The Lost Son is part of the Zonderkidz I Can Read! series of books. It is also part of the publishers The Beginners Bible series. As such, a Bible verse is included at the beginning of the book for a reference to the story. The Bible verse given is Luke 15:20.The illustrations, by Kelly Pulley and Lisa Reed, are bright and colorful and help to illustrate the text.What I Like: I like having easy-to-read versions of classic Bible stories, so kids can read them and enjoy them on their own. What I Dislike: The only thing I didnt like was there was no mention of there being another brother who was left on the farm to do all the work (and who wasnt happy seeing his brother return). I realize including this would have probably made the story too long for this line of books. So, Im not really complaining; Im just pointing this out.Overall Rating: Excellent.Christian Children's Book Review
