I recommend this book to parents of children who want to believe in miracles.
Dorothy Thompson
When they heard the shepherd was only 5 and was able to stay up at night, they wanted to be shepherds!
Maureen
Such a story is sure to make an impact on the mind of a young reader in a way that few books can.

The Christmas liturgy, presented from a child's point of view - simple, innocent, open to wondrous occurrences - both highlights the majesty and wonder of Christ's birth and makes the liturgy accessible to God's beloved little ones. I bought four copies already for the children in my family and I can't wait to present them. I'm sure this book will be treasured and read over and over again. This is a beautiful version of the greatest story ever told and I highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
Wise beyond his years, young Obed has become a seasoned shepherd boy. Acutely aware of the hillside surroundings while tending his flock Obed stares at the sky in wonderment. A single bright light fills the sky. At first afraid, Obed felt a calmness wash over him as the beautiful angels descend, proclaiming "A Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord."

Unsure what their message means, Obed looks to his father for guidance. With reassurances from his father, Obed and the older shepherds journey to Bethlehem to meet the newborn King. Their journey and meeting Christ the Lord is nothing less than miraculous.

Your fist reaction may be, oh goodness another story on the birth of Christ. Toss those thoughts away and immerse yourself and your children into the magical arrival of Christ the Lord. Children's author, Cheryl C. Malandrinos has re-explored and created a beautiful re-enactment of Christ the Lord's birth in a unique and awe inspiring rendition which surely will become classical reading in Christian religious school studies and home libraries.

The old time illustrations expertly created by illustrator, Eugene Ruble will leave you feeling that you journeyed through the countryside with Obed and his fellow shepherds.

While helping his father guard their sheep by night, five-year-old Obed is among the first to hear of the Savior's birth. Angels send the shepherds to see the newborn baby, but Obed doesn't want to go. Who will guard his sheep from wolves?

Little Shepherd is a delightful retelling of Luke 2:8-16 through the eyes of a young boy who is learning about responsibility and obedience. Through his father's example and a night of miracles, Obed experiences the peace that comes from trusting God.

I especially loved how the author showed Obed's sense of wonder and his growing faith toward the end of the story. I recommend this book for anyone four years old and up. It would make a perfect reading for children's church during Advent or at home for the whole family on Christmas Eve.

Cheryl Malandrinos wrote a wonderful new approach to an old old telling of the Christmas story of the birth of baby Jesus. Ruble did a gray job with the artwork, too.

Little Shepherd
by Cheryl C. Malandrinos
Illustrations by Eugene E. Ruble

Five year Obed has just been entrusted with his first flock of sheep when one chilly night a bright light fills the sky. Angels fill the night sky delivering a message about a newborn baby.

To Obed's surprise Father and the other shepherds all head to Bethlehem to see the sight the angels said they would see. But Obed is worried about the sheep they are leaving unguarded. What about the wolves that have been howling throughout the night. But Father assures him that the sheep will be safe.

What they found was what the angels had told them a baby in a manger surrounded by animals and his parents. But as the wolves continued to howl Obed couldn't understand why he alone seemed concerned for their flocks. Did no one else hear the predators?

When they returned, to Obed's utter amazement not a sheep or lamb was lost! Somehow Father had known that this would be the case. It was a part of the miracle of the night filled angels, a newborn baby and unguarded sheep. This would be a night Obed would remember!

The Little Shepherd is the perfect book to share the joy and wonder of the season with your children or grandchildren. Children with feel a connection with Obed as he is 5 and thus be drawn into the story from the opening.

I was provided a copy of this book in conjunction with this Pump Up Your Book blog tour in exchange for my honest review.

I recently shared this book with our two boys, ages 6 and 8. They loved it, and we will be reading it again during the Advent season.
The boys loved putting a name and face to the story of the shepherds! They help put up our manger each year, and love placing the sheep in different places. Now they know one of the little shepherd's by name, Obed.
They listened as I read, and eyes got big at the mention of the wolf. When they heard the shepherd was only 5 and was able to stay up at night, they wanted to be shepherds!
Then we spoke of how the Angel appeared in the story, and we spoke of Jesus arrival. What a wonderful story for them to be pulled right to the time of the birth. They wondered how Obed could leave the sheep alone and the wolf not get them. We talked about the miracles.
What an awesome book to share and show a shepherd they can put a name to, and bring the magic of that night alive. Loved it!!

I received this book through Pump Your Book Virtual Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
