WHILE SHEPHERDS WASHED THEIR FLOCKS by Liz Curtis Higgs
Many Christmases ago, after the students finished singing 'While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks by Night,' one of the children commented, "Teacher wasn't it nice of those shepherds to wash those sheep before taking them to Jesus?"
- from While Shepherds Washed Their Flocks
While Shepherds Washed Their Flocks is a delightful collection of kid-size quotable quotes gathered from parents, grandparents, teachers, and neighbors around the country. Like all children, the ones quoted here are honest (sometimes painfully so), verbally courageous (or is that outrageous), wildly imaginative, and very funny indeed.
Humorist Liz Curtis Higgs, author of ten books of humor and encouragement for both adults and children, includes stories from her own heart (and funny bone), colorfully illustrated with the whimsical artistry of Dennis Hill. Together they offer a fresh look at the world through the eyes of a child.
