Synopsis

The Shepherd Girl of Bethlehem by Carey Morning

Weaving the Nativity story into an original tale, this evocative Christmas book exudes a heartwarming message about love and peace. A little shepherd girl loves her father greatly, and adores spending time with him on the hillside, tending his flocks. But one night, he is called away and she can't find him. She anxiously searches high and low, eventually finding him at a stable in Bethlehem, where her journey ends with a most glorious discovery. Alan Marks' illustrations - crafted in detailed ink and deep watercolour washes - flow through the pages, taking the story towards its colourful and evocative end.

Reviews

Lovely to read aloud and helps give a sense of place to little ones as you're reading aloud. . .. The night time pictures are well drawn, with a wonderful sense of the light coming from the star in the sky and then the contrast of the dark night with the warmth and glow of the stable.
