VeraNorth CarolinaAge: Over 65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5for the very young childMarch 16, 2017VeraNorth CarolinaAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Well respected and highly anticipated author, Sally Lloyd-Jones has used her unique talent to share Psalm 23 with the very young child and artfully created the message with easy to interpret pictures that the young child can understand.
The text of the beloved Psalm 23 is simply put forth in words for the very young child. To me this is not an opportunity to actually teach the Psalm to the child. No, it is a little board book for young hands and young hearts to be able to understand how God is always with the child and He will always take care of him or her.
I would strongly encourage parents and caregivers to begin teaching the actual text of Psalm 23 to the child in short phrases as soon as they are able to grasp it. Committing it to memory will surely bring comfort throughout his or her life. But for the time being and for the very young child, it is good to take an opportunity such as the book Found presents to teach the child about God's presence.

Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Highly recommend itMarch 14, 2017Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Found: Psalm 23" is a board book for young children (suggested for 4-8 years old). It loosely translates Psalm 23 using simple words and ideas so that a child can understand it. It has the reader (as a lamb) and God (as the shepherd) as the main characters. The lamb and shepherd have very expressive body language despite the somewhat loose illustration style. (It's clear what everything in the illustrations is meant to be, yet it's not highly detailed.) The colors used and the body language of the characters reinforced the peaceful or frightening moments.
I've been looking for a book that would help to describe God to a very young child. This book clearly shows how God cares for us by providing us with food and everything we need. How he guides us, protects us, etc. And it ends with "Wherever I go, I know // God's never stopping, never giving up, unbreaking, always and forever love will go, too."
My favorite part is the illustrations and text for the "Even when I walk through the dark, scary, lonely places... // I won't be afraid. Because my Shepherd knows where I am. He is here with me." I'd highly recommend this comforting and engaging board book.
I received this book as a review copy from the publisher through BookLook.
Treenz5 Stars Out Of 5A must have for every home! Delightful piece of artMarch 8, 2017TreenzQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is a piece of art around the 23rd Psalm. While aimed for children, with simplified language, for me the art alone makes this a book worthy of any coffee table.
The version I have is a board book with a slightly padded feel to the cover. It opens to a full page spread illustration of a shepherd in a field with sheep resting around him... starting 'God is my Shepherd. And I am his little lamb.
I highly recommend this book on every level - it is utterly delightful.
Please note that Booklook sent me a copy of this book for purposes of review, however the opinions expressed are entirely my own.
Fitzysmom5 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMMarch 7, 2017FitzysmomQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We are big fans of both Sally Lloyd-Jones and Jago. Sally's words and Jago's illustrations have combined to produce some of our favorite books. Our all time favorite is of course The Jesus Storybook Bible. We've used that resource for several events in our house including our Advent readings. In fact right now we're preparing to us it for our Lent and Easter readings.
Found: Psalm 23 is taken from that wonderful book. While the words are the same the illustrations are new. And in my opinion the new pictures are even more beautiful than the originals.
I really like the idea of a separate book that focuses in on this chapter of Scripture. Most of us have it memorized but Sally's paraphrase allows the reader to take a fresh look at it and grasp the concepts it contains. What a beautiful thing to teach your little one that God's love is "never stopping, never giving up, unbreaking, and it is always and forever."
If you have a preschooler this book would be a perfect fit for your family library. I also think it would make a great birthday present, Easter basket filler, or baby shower gift. It's a padded board book so it will stand up to lots of reading and turning of pages by little hands.

Heather5 Stars Out Of 5The sweetest little board book!February 23, 2017HeatherQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Found tells the story of the twenty-third Psalm in a way that engages even the littlest of kids. The adorable illustrations of a little lamb and its shepherd are perfect for keeping wiggly toddlers engaged, and the short and sweet story carries a big message about God's great love for us!
I've read it to my little one year old baby girl numerous times, and unlike most board books that make me cringe with their mind-numbing lack of storyline, Found is a rich, poignant book that I actually wouldn't mind having committed to memory for once. My baby girl loves the book, too, and it's nice and sturdy and holds up great to her pushing and pulling on the pages!
