I understand that many people object to the word "Crippled." Maybe it is a word that should be eliminated from our vocabulary, but we don't always have to refer to animals with the same words we use for describing people. I don't think "crippled" is necessarily an offensive word when describing an animal, but maybe it is. The story is set during the time of Christ's birth, and "crippled" is an old-fashioned word that seems to fit the story. I suppose it could have been called "The Lamb with a Physical Disability" or "The Special Needs Lamb," but "Crippled" has more of an old-world sound to it.
The book has also been criticized for historical inaccuracies, saying that Mary would not have referred to the Baby Jesus as "the new king," nor would she say that he "came from heaven to teach us about God." I think it's perfectly alright to take these small liberties in order to get a message across. I don't think my son grew up believing that Mary actually said these specific things. What he took away from the story was the positive message about God having something special in store for a little lamb who was left behind because of his limp. I think we need to be careful about overthinking children's books. This story meant a great deal to my son during a difficult time in his emotional development. I would recommend it for any child, but especially for a child struggling with having been given a unique challenge to deal with. I think this book is wonderful.
I tried to submit with no stars but have to give at least one in order to submit.
I adore the book and had gotten it for my Granddaughter for Christmas. Although I had ordered it in time for Christmas delivery, sadly it was one of those packages that they talked about on the news and it didn't arrive on time. I do my shopping inline because I don't get around well. That part was a total nightmare, but I was going to make sure she got a present. Imagine my delight at having to get out in the crowds on Christmas Eve. I found another copy at the MALL (I'm still shaking from that one). She got her present, Christmas was saved. I got my original order on the 26th. I'm sure this was all due to the record amount of packages being sent at the time of the year but I've learned my lesson. It wasn't that the people sent it late and it looked better than the copy I was forced to buy at the last minute. The book they sent was a high-quality item and I will continue to do business with them. But from now on I'm ordering Christmas gifts even earlier.

But for me it was a bit too soppy. Not as good as the Punchinello series.
