I am so pleased today to introduce you to Cheryl Malandrinos, the author of the inspirational children's book, "Little Shepherd."
Cheryl was gracious enough to answer a few questions about her writing.
About The Book:
Obed is in the hills outside Bethlehem when the angels appear to announce the Savior's birth. Can he trust that the miracle of the first Christmas will keep his flock safe while he visits the newborn King?
Off in the distance, a wolf howled. Obed moved closer to his flock, scanning the hills for any sign of a pack that might race in and steal his sheep. His family depended upon the sheep for food and their wool for clothing. No sheep would be lost under his watch.
He shivered inside his cloak. While the days were getting warmer, the nights still chilled him. He walked over to the large fire blazing inside the pit. He rubbed his hands together and held them up to the fire to warm them.
Above him, the sky twinkled with millions of stars. Obed couldn’t remember a night so clear.
Suddenly, a bright light filled the sky.
Obed trembled. “Father, what is happening?”
"Little Shepherd" is one of the most charming children's books that I've had the pleasure of reviewing. Author Cheryl Malandrinos captures the wonder and the majesty of the heavenly hosts appearance to the shepherds of Bethlehem in her unique and inspirational story. Children and parents alike will enjoy reading this tale during the holiday season and for days to come afterwards as well.
I highly recommend this book for holiday gift giving, or beforehand, to usher in the season of celebration of the birth of Jesus.
