The words of the well-loved Biblical Psalm 23 are portrayed in an inner-city contemporary setting. Walking the streets from home to school past many dangers a brother and sister are comforted by the “rod” of the crossing guard ‘guided in right paths’ by caring teachers and “anointed with oil” at bathtime by a loving grandmother. Illustrator Tim Ladwig’s watercolor paintings deliver this inspirtational message to modern readers. Paperback. All ages.
