Who Counts? is featured on the Junior Library Guild Fall 2017 list.
“Levine and Sasso present contemporary retellings of the three biblical parables with numerical themes: the good shepherd, lost coin, and prodigal son….All three stories are true to their biblical roots, but Meganck’s handsome paintings of diverse characters and present-day settings may help readers find greater connections to their messages about value, faithfulness, and appreciation.” —Publishers Weekly
“Three well-known parables from the New Testament Gospel of Luke come together in a remarkable way in Who Counts? 100 Sheep, 10 Coins, and 2 Sons, by biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine and Sandy Eisenberg Sasso.” —Foreword Reviews
“An unusual and creative interpretation of the three parables, offering the satisfying conclusion that each person (or sheep or coin) matters and should be counted.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Levine and Sasso’s simple prose, set alongside Margaux Meganck’s culturally-sensitive illustrations, creates an expansive vision in which everybody counts.” —The Christian Century
