Children’s Corner — Found

28 Feb

51ru0piqowl-_sy498_bo1204203200_From the bestselling The Jesus Storybook Bible, with over two million products sold, comes Found based on Psalm 23. Written by Sally Lloyd-Jones and illustrated by Jago, little ones will fall in love with this padded cover board book that reminds them of God’s Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.

 

 

b1o09dwbp8s-_ux250_Sally Lloyd-Jones is a Brit who came to the US in 1989 “just for a year.” She’s still here.

Born in Kampala, Uganda, raised in East, and West Africa and at a boarding school in the New Forest, the first book she ever remembers reading all the way through was THE COMPLETE NONSENSE by Edward Lear. Things have not been the same since.

She lives in Manhattan and enjoys dividing her time between the front half of her apartment and the back.

51rfq3zhwpl-_ux250_Some time ago, a boy called Jago arrived here on Earth with a burning ambition to be ….

Superman, Indiana Jones, or quite possibly King Arthur.

Afer a little hard work and an awful lot of drawing I settled on my fourth choice of career, illustrating children’s books, something I reckon I could be quite good at one day.

I live in a slightly damp wetsuit in Cornwall with my fantastically lovely wife Alex, beautiful daughter Lily Peach and small round son, Rudy.

I work almost entirely digitally, using a couple of Macs and an iPad in a secret blend of the finest textures, papers and digital paints. I could tell you how I make each picture, but then I’d have to kill you.

I enjoy working on children’s books and am drawn to stories with a hint of eccentricity.

My Impressions:

Your Easter basket shopping just got easier! Found, written by Sally Lloyd-Jones and illustrated by Jago, is the perfect way to show your child God’s love. With simple verse based on Psalm 23, your child will easily understand all the ways God cares for him. The Good Shepherd is beside his little lamb through all things, including times that are scary. I loved the simple, yet effective, illustrations. That little lamb is very expressive, smiling and content when in the arms of his shepherd. Found comes in a sturdy board book format suitable for the smallest of readers. It will hold up to the multiple readings your child is sure to request. I can’t wait to share this one with a little friend!

Highly Recommended.

Audience: children ages 4-8.
