Perfect for Christmas concerts and assemblies.

On the first Christmas Eve, a poor shepherd happens across a small child in the hill country about Bethlehem. To the shepherd's surprise, the child explains she is an angel practicing to be a herald angel so she can announce the Saviour's birth.

The shepherd, taken by the child's sincerity, believes the child's story, and asks to see the Saviour. The shepherd's wife, however, has her doubts.
