The Old Shepherd's Tale

Christopher Nye Illustrated by Henri Sørensen

32 pp.  
9 1/4" x 11 1/4"
Illustrations: In color


Published:  October 2016


The momentous events of Jesus's birth are retold in this moving story from an unusual perspective. The tale focuses on the animals present with Mary and Joseph in the stable—the cow, the ox, and the donkey—along with the old shepherd who is awakened by some unexpected visitors.

This is a gentle story about valuing the role of animals in human life and in the most extraordinary of circumstances.
