Every so often a debuting picture book artist creates a work so magnificent that it’s destined to become a classic.  In thirty radiant pastel paintings, Julia Miner illuminates the King James version of the Twenty-third Psalm with clarity and warmth, drawing the reader into the world of a rugged shepherd family.  Follow the lambs over steep mountain paths and across a treacherous valley, and soon you will reach the safety of the fold.  Nestle in the woolly coat of a mother sheep or in the tender arms of the sheepherder; slumber without care under the starry sky.  The Shepherd’s Song creates a dramatic story that even the youngest child will understand, while bringing the psalm’s peaceful message to life for all readers.  See reviews.
