Weaving the nativity story into an original tale, The Shepherd Girl of Bethlehem exudes a heartwarming message about love--between father and daughter, and God and His people.
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's illustrations--crafted in detailed ink and deep watercolor washes--flow through the pages, taking the story toward its colorful and evocative end.
