Publisher's Description

The words of Psalm Twenty-Three have long comforted and reassured people of all ages. This imaginative, new presentation of the psalm pairs the timeless words with vibrant, contemporary illustrations that reinforce and aid our understanding of the psalm's powerful message. This unique reminder of God's constant presence with us makes a thoughtful and inspiring book for both children and adults.

School Library Journal

Gr 2 Up-The memorable words of Psalm 23 have comforted many people in times of need. Here, this reassuring prayer is accompanied by collages composed of swirls of color and small figures of various ethnic groups. Beginning with "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want," each spread contains another succeeding line surrounded by eclectic, kaleidoscopic artwork intended to mirror the emotions evoked by the words. The artist's interpretation of the psalm is interesting and unusual. Created for a broad range of readers, this rendition of the Old Testament passage will most likely appeal to older audiences. Younger children may relate more easily to Psalm Twenty-Three (Eerdmans, 1997), illustrated by Tim Ladwig. However, Wilson's version will serve as a supplemental purchase for most collections.-Linda L. Walkins, Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Brighton, MA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Publisher's Weekly

The inventive Anne Wilson (The Owl and the Pussycat, reviewed in Children's Forecasts, Mar. 10) brings her exuberant mixed-media collages to the Twenty-third Psalm in The Lord Is My Shepherd. Childlike in their direct and immediate appeal, the illustrations reflect sophisticated printmaking techniques. Tiny, multi-ethnic figures journey against abstract backgrounds harmoniously composed of vividly patterned shapes and swirls, capturing-and transmitting-a sense of the psalmist's unalloyed joy.

    The Lord Is My Shepherd, illustrated by Anne Wilson, uses Psalms 23 as its text. The text is broken down into sentences, with each segment illustrated in a unique way. The poetic language of the Bible verses lend themselves well to the vibrant, double-page illustrations throughout the book. What I like: I like the artwork. Its eclectic and impressionist nature grabs your attention right from the start. The first sentence, "The Lord is my shepherd," shows a figure standing in a blue circle, surrounded by circles of various colors and patterns flowing out to the edges of the pages. "He maketh me to lie down in green pastures" is illustrated with a painting of a patchwork of field-like segments, with a group of figures lying in a circle on a patch of green.What I Dislike: The title suggested, to me, a book of more depth about the 23rd Psalm. I thought it would be either a book about how God "shepherds" us through life, or an annotated explanation of this favorite psalm.Overall Rating: Good.Age Appeal: According to the publisher, the book is intended for 4-8-year-olds. That is probably because of the minimal text and abundance of color illustrations. But, I think older children, and adults, would appreciate the book more as they would understand its contents. The younger children, however, would certainly enjoy the bright, kaleidoscope of colors and patterns used to illustrate the text.Christian Children's Book Review
