Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3 In a handsome format, the framed verses of the King James Version, each decorated with a spray of golden pansies, appear on the versos and face full-page mixed-media illustrations of children in situations associated with the scriptural quotations. In most, the connection is apparent, but some, such as a preening swan for "thou anointest my head with oil," are a bit of a stretch. Nevertheless, the youngsters depicted in soft, rich colors in lush outdoor settings are winsomely realistic and expressive. However, although the Psalms are part of the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible, the pictures stress Christianity, showing church steeples, a wreath-encircled cross, and a stained-glass window of Jesus Christ. This is more a traditional children's Biblical picture book than Bijou LeTord's The Little Shepherd (Doubleday, 1992), which paraphrases the words and has simple, gentle pictures of a Judean shepherd boy, or Julia Miner's The Shepherd's Song: The Twenty-Third Psalm (Dial, 1993; o.p.), which illustrates the psalm with scenes of a sheepherding family on a Greek island. Happily, there are always places for new interpretations of this beloved passage. Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
