David C. Cook Little Shepherd Girl, The

Young Sarah wants to be a shepherd, even though usually only boys are allowed to tend the sheep. But with a family full of girls, what's a father to do? Sarah goes to the fields with the flock and her cousins, and on her first night is astounded by the sight of angels announcing the birth of a Saviour. Although her cousins all boys disappear, Sarah is mindful of her responsibility, and she and all the sheep make their way back to Bethlehem where she encounters a baby in a manger. This charming picture book for ages 4 to 7 retells the Christmas story from the perspective of a plucky young girl who learns that she is loved by her father, and by God the Father.

About the Author: Juliann Henry is a UMC pastor and chaplain at a psychiatric hospital in New Jersey. She has a degree in literature from Rutgers University and a Master of Divinity from Palmer Theological Seminary (formerly Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary). A wife and mother of three, in her spare time she rescues stray animals, gardens, and writes stories for children. This is her first book.
