"The first story is about a man who has 100 sheep, and looses one, and now his may concern is finding the lost one. The next is about a woman with 100 coins, and then looses one, and the rest of the story is her pursuit of finding the lost coin. As we get to the last story about the man’s lost son returning, we sort of see how loosing one, makes you yearn for its return and thus the man’s rejoicing for the returned one.
What the perfect book examples of the parables, while geared to children ages 4 to 8, older and younger would still benefit.
The story of the Prodigal Son is always a difficult one, but with the showing of how a person yearns for the lost one, it becomes much more clear for little minds, and maybe adult ones.
I received this book through LibraryThing, and was not required to give a positive review.

" This is a great story for children! It is based on Biblical stories that never grow old. The lost sheep, the lost coin and the prodigal son! Lots of lessons for everyone. " said.

" I loved these slightly modernized parables. They're a great way to introduce these three parables and make them more accessible with very minor adjustments that help simplify and make them more understandable to young children. " said.

" This book has three very simple retellings of parables found in the Bible that all have the central theme of seeking the lost and celebrating the found. This would be a great resource for children’s Bible classes or even for younger students who are learning about theme. 3.5 stars " 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.
