" A retelling of the 3 parables of lost things/people, with emphasis on the shepherd/woman/father counting and realizing that something/one is lost and then actively seeking. It's a nice nuance to the story.Also, the pictures are correct from a mathematical/counting perspective, which is nice. " said.

" I loved this book because it shows what really is important in our everyday life and what we all thrive for as human beings . I love the illustration it was so beautiful and colorful , it captures the hearts of young and old !!! " said.

" Interesting interpretation of 3 parables with great pictures.I'll cut right to the chase: It was great, up until it dealt with the father and the older son at the end of the Prodigal Son Parable. Instead of what happened in the Bible, the author replaced it with a feel-good ending which some people might love, but I'm not interested in gutting and dressing Scripture. " said.

" Who Counts? Is a beautifully illustrated children's book that is educational, inspirational, and realistic. The numbering is great for children who are learning to count. The stories blend seamlessly and create a beautiful children's book. The illustrations are very realistic, respectful of the original stories. They have been modernized to today's culture but still hold the same truths. " said.

" The cover made me want to look further. The artwork is wonderful.I like the idea of this book but only the first story really interested me. The others too closely copied the first, down to certain wording. The third story was my least favorite. Especially the part about not inviting the elder son to the party.Alone they were OK but as a set it was disappointing.I did accept this book from Netgalley to review. " said.

" This is a very good read for primary children. It teachers them that everyone is special and important by using parables from the Bible. The stories are well written any the illustrations are wonderlfully drawn. Even preschool children can enjoy this book as long as an adult can explain the lesson in each story. I highly recommend this book to any family as is teaches joy and inspiration to children. " said.

" Who Counts is a creative retelling of three of Jesus' most popular parables: the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the prodigal son. I will be honest and admit that I haven't read the bible and although I did study religious education when I was at school this was something we didn't learn so even as an adult I have learnt from this book - 4 stars from me, easy to follow and understand and a good way of teaching these stories. " said.

" A man is missing one sheep, a woman is missing her coin – the father is missing a son ---based on the Bible’s parables but makes you wonder as to what are you missing – young people can help count the sheep, money and sons – and help look for them but also is good at pointing out how every single person should feel counted. Very nicely illustrated, well written and made me (a 67 year old person) look at these parables a bit different! " said.
