In the hills outside Bethlehem, Obed guards his first flock of sheep. When the angels appear to tell of the Saviorís birth, he is hesitant to follow the others to see the new King. When Obed returns to his sheep, he realizes it is a night of miracles.
"Little Shepherd by Cheryl C. Malandrinos is a fresh rendition of the familiar story of the angels appearing to the shepherds in the field and announcing the birth of the Savior. The unique slant to this particular retelling of the scriptural story is that the reader sees the event through the eyes of a little shepherd boy, tending his first-ever flock of sheep. As a grandmother, I would be delighted to read this story to my grandchildren. As such, I recommend it to parents/grandparents/teachers everywhere who wish to bring this passage of scripture to life for impressionable young hearts to understand".

"Heartstrings will be tugged as readers journey to the manger with a little shepherd boy. Obedís father entrusted him with his first flock of sheep. Everything seems to be going perfect until angels fill the sky with an unusual request. Obedís gripping tale promises to inspire and become a family favorite."
