Kid life is not always carefree. Sickness, death, and divorce can cast a shadow on even the most resilient child. Since our family opened the door to children in foster care, we have seen in a new way the doubts and burdens these little ones bear. How can we prepare them for whatever God sends their way? By teaching them about God’s great love and care for them. Probably the most familiar of all Scripture, Psalm 23 eloquently describes the kind of love that is "never stopping, never giving up, unbreaking, always and forever." The author, Sally Lloyd-Jones’s paraphrase will give your family a fresh look at what it means when God is our shepherd, while artist Jago provides a stunning interpretation with delightful illustrations that are both engaging and relatable.
Found: Psalm 23 will encourage children to not lose hope and to know that their Shepherd walks with them through everything. And because the text and illustrations present even the dark and scary parts of Psalm 23 in a way that is age-appropriate, we knew this would be the book we will send with each of our foster children as they leave our care.

Illustrated by: Jago,an accomplished illustrator with several prestigious awards to his credit, including an AOI Silver Award in 2004, and the National Literacy Association 'Wow!' Award.
Our family loves to read the beautifully illustrated and well written Jesus Storybook Bible. This board book excerpt is wonderful for younger children who have a hard time sitting through the longer stories with few pictures. I think it would be even more wonderful if it included the ESV (or other Bible translation) text along side the paraphrase.
