Little Shepherd is Cheryl G. Malandrinos's first children's book. It features little Obed, the shepherd boy. He and his father are out watching the flock when they see a bright light. Within the light appears an angel. The angel tells Obed and his father about a Savior being born that night. You all know than how the rest of the story goes.
I like this book. I thought that Cheryl did a good job telling this well known story through the eyes of Obed. Obed shared the same wonderment and intrigue as any little child would. While I did like this book and the illustrates, I did find the pictures to be a little busy. It made it a little hard to read the words within the picture. Also, this is the type of book that I would read to little children versus letting them read the book themselves. Only because there was a lot of words and children do not have a huge attention span to read all those words. Otherwise, Little Shepherd is a book to treasure.
