The wording in Found is taken directly from the story "The Good Shepherd" in The Jesus Storybook Bible when it is paraphrasing Psalm 23. (The whole story of The Good Shepherd is not in here, just the Psalm 23 portion.)
The illustrations in Found, however, are new - and I love them! They are beautifully done in calm colors and just create a very peaceful feeling.
Our littlest one loves to read "Shepherd Found" (as he calls this book) - and he likes to read it often. It's definitely a keeper!

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.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review. (Posted on 3/7/2017)

The author, Sally Lloyd-Jones has put together a board book for ages 4-8 that explains Psalm 23 in terms and words that a child can understand. This is a great concept for us parents because our children have the benefit of learning this Psalm at a very early age.
I'm so glad this book was written. I don't see many like it or children.

I've read it to my little almost 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!
