Psalm 23 is one of the most comforting and peaceful scriptures in the Bible and author/illustrator Agostino Traini has beautifully rendered its message for children through his charming pop up drawings. Each page invites conversation with children, “What does a shepherd do with his sheep?” What does it mean to ‘not be in want?'” “What are still waters? How does that make you feel?” I had a delightful conversation with my 7 year-old friend who sensed the peacefulness of the sheep, resting, dozing and looking to Jesus in the green pastures, and being protected and guided over the waterfall’s bridge. Drawings were effective in their simplicity, clearly giving the message of Jesus leading, restoring, protecting and providing. This just might be my new favorite baby gift!
