Karl, Chester, and a Sheep Named Sharon (Bedtime Stories for a Lifetime of Leadership - Volume 1) by Scott McGihon is an inspirational book that would appeal most to readers of any age looking to grow as leaders or as individuals. The book is designed so that adults and children alike can understand the lessons within the stories. The author makes use of Karl, Chester, and Sharon to share meaningful life lessons on integrity, leadership, and kindness. Are you ready to experience the stories of Karl, Chester, and Sharon while also learning important life lessons?

Karl, Chester, and a Sheep Named Sharon by Scott McGihon was a well-written book with an intriguing cover image. The picture of a sheep pushing a shopping cart caught my attention the moment I saw it as it made me wonder what the image was supposed to represent. As I read the book, I came to enjoy the different stories and their lessons, but I have to say that I really liked Karl as I have never read a story written from the perspective of a shopping cart before so its uniqueness immediately had me interested. Overall, I found this book to be a worthwhile read. I would be very interested in sharing these stories with the children’s group I work with the next time we convene, as the life lessons could prove quite valuable to them, and I feel that they would enjoy the stories as well.

Karl the Shopping Cart is excited about his job of helping people. Not only is he a handsome shopping cart, but he also takes pride in his profession. Unfortunately, Karl is lonely. When Jake, a fellow cart, recognizes Karl’s dilemma, the lonely shopping cart realizes he needs to be more aware of his purpose and the reason for the choices we make in life. Chester the Charger learns to allow others to assist in everyday ventures rather than relying solely on himself. It is good to work as a team while expressing appreciation for all the key elements in a project. Sharon the Sheep feels insignificant until Buck enters her life to make her realize her potential and importance in the world. Last, Jack the Rabbit is the fastest animal around. He wins all the races but finds himself alone in the winner’s circle. Harry, a friendly Hedgehog, sympathizes with Jack with the reinforcement of an age-old life lesson: it’s not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game that counts.

Karl, Chester, and a Sheep named Sharon: Bedtime Stories for a Lifetime of Leadership - Volume 1 by Scott McGihon is the most powerful example of life inspiration I’ve ever read.
