Sweet story showing how the Shepherd loves us and cares for us. Filled with beautiful illustrations, the story is great to read aloud. Opportunity for all ages to learn about God's love is found in the book. Sunday School classes and family reading time are wonderful ways to share the story. I received a copy of this book from the author and this is my personal honest opinion. No review was required.

I love this book. Kelli has used her experience with sheep to relate Psalm 23 to children. I would recommend this book to anyone with children. The passage comes alive and you are able to understand how good Jesus is as a shepherd to us.

Main character Woolfred, a ram lamb, follows verses of the 23rd Psalm in describing why he trusts and follows his shepherd. New to the farm ewe, Dotty Spot, is doubtful. Interesting details about sheep farming combine with truths of provision, protection and love. Postscript identifies Jesus Christ as the Good Shepherd and invites the reader to trust and follow Him. Detailed illustrations even a very young child can enjoy. Appropriate for all ages. I have given this book to my children, grandchildren and as gifts.

Kelli Carruth Miller writes what she knows and continues to learn through her own experiences as a shepherdess and wool yarn producer. In her book, she harmonizes with David's 23rd song by sharing modern day examples of the shepherd's care for the sheep. I adore the names chosen for her characters, and no wonder - they are true to life sheep Kelli tends on her Restoration Farm. The author shows each with a personality easily seen in humans. Dotty Spot is very cautious, unsure and asks many questions about the Shepherd. Woolfred, the wise one who instructs, is gentle and kind, and leaves Dotty with a most important question at the end. It's a wonderful book to read to small children with sweet illustrations. (Who doesn't love a lamb?) And, it's a great book for grade schoolers to read on their own with obvious truths and still deeper meanings for their spiritual growth. Best of all, Kelli has created additional resources for her writing. She travels and shares with students about sheep shearing, carding, wool production, and even patterns to create characters found in her book. Her blog includes interesting stories where the reader can continue to discover truths, as well as intriguing information about sheep. I'm thrilled to add this book to our Christian school library, but I will also encourage our teachers to check out these resources. You will love the real story, the real characters, and the real message conveyed in Green Grass, Still Waters. The plan of salvation is clear and concise. I recommend this book for parents of small children, for students, for Christian schools and homeschoolers in particular. As a grandparent, I see it as a perfect gift for children everywhere. (It's available in Spanish and English) Well done, Kelli Carruth Miller, I'll be following you everywhere.

Endearing and enjoyable to read, Green Grass, Still Waters is just what it’s title represents...Psalm 23. This beautiful Psalm is introduced in a way that is serene, peaceful, loving, and kind. Told from the standpoint of a happy and contented lamb named Woolfred, he shares his experiences with Dotty Spot, a ewe who is not trusting of a Shepherd and thinks that life is fine on her own. This is a sweet story with precious illustrations, and it creatively teaches and leads, which is just what the Good Shepherd does for all who are a part of the flock.
