In this oversized board book, author Sally Lloyd-Jones retells an old favorite: the 23rd Psalm.
Although I love the lyrical flow of the King James Version I memorized as a child, I appreciate the wisdom of putting the beloved “Shepherd’s Psalm” into language young children can easily understand.
“I shall not want” becomes “I have everything I need.”
And “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me” is translated “Even when I walk through dark, scary, lonely places, I won’t be afraid. Because my Shepherd knows where I am. He is here with me.”
Where Found really shines is in the beautiful illustrations by Jago. The cool palette of blues and greens evokes a sense of peace and calm.
My grandchildren enjoyed pouring over the pictures on each page as much as I did.
If our goal is to hide the Truth of Scripture deep in our children’s hearts from a young age — as I believe it should be — then books like Found provide an easy and engaging way to do so.
