This charming story lets you walk alongside young Ruth and her brother Philip, as the Good Shepherd is discovered in their hearts. Through the help of some dear friends & unexpected events, the pair learns about God, the One who takes care of His little lambs in the pasture.
Ruth & Philip are good siblings and companions for each other, especially when they share their treasured romps in the woods. Together, they are intrigued & fascinated by every little creature, whether it's in the grass, the trees, or hiding someplace else.
It seems to me, as if these children have two main goals. One goal is to attempt to always evade Aunt Margaret's never-ending slew of chores. The other goal is to earn money... so that they can buy their dream camera, and finish their prized, homemade bird book.
The most important thing in this story though, is that the best secret of all is found out--and that's the Tanglewoods' Secret.
This book had very good morals for children of any age to learn. Older readers might decide to read this book aloud, so that even the young ones can enjoy it too. I loved this story very much. There's plenty of amusement to keep you entertained by all the colorful characters.

As a family, we love to read stories aloud to each other. This has to be one of the top stories we have read this year. Not only was it interesting and held my children's attention, it has a strong moral element. The characters in the book enjoy exploring their natural surroundings. The story takes a tragic turn that makes you think of friendship and what that means to the way you lead your life. We cried at the end of the story, even my 10 year old son! We look forward to reading more of this authors books.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
