Reviewed by Irene S. Roth


This is a great Christmas book for kids. The book is a fresh reinterpretation of a familiar biblical story of the angels appearing to the shepherds announcing the birth of the Saviour. Cheryl has a unique slant on the retelling of this scriptural story. The reader will see the events unfold through the eyes of a little shepherd boy, tending his first-ever flock of sheep. It is an enchanting story that will bring the important message to young readers. One of the angel's messages in the book is, Do not be afraid. I will bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. What a great message to bring to young hearts.

Overall Thoughts

I think this book will be a wonderful addition to every family's library. It is a book that grandparents, parents, and teachers will be able to read to their young kids. It is an educational book in many ways, and there are numerous messages in the book that can be explained and discussed. Cheryl's book is such a gem of wisdom and delight!
