Want a children’s picture story book that you can read that capture Jesus’ teaching about the wise and foolish builder?  Tim Ladwig has illustrated another excellent children’s book on Jesus’ parables for the ages of four through seven.  I was delighted to see Ladwig has another volume out as part of his “Stories Jesus Told” series.  Previously I have enjoyed three of the books he illustrated: The Lost Son Comes Home, Who Is My Neighbor? and  Looking for the Lost Sheep.  So when I saw he has a new book out titled The Story of the Two Builders I realized I need to read this to my kids!  What’s amazing is my kids can identify his illustration style as the same as the previous books from him we read before!
