Little Shepherd + Giveaway

My review

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.
