The Nativity story is viewed from the point-of-view of Rachel, the young daughter of a shepherd. Rachel finds a silver bell with a red ribbon, which the wise woman in the village says is to be given away when the time is right. Meanwhile Rachel's father is tending his sheep when the angels proclaim the news 'tonight God's son was born.' Her father rushes to the village to bring Rachel along with him to Bethlehem. He is giving a newborn lamb to the new baby. Rachel suddenly realizes the purpose of the silver bell and she ties it around the neck of the baby lamb as her gift to the Christ Child. The religious symbolism of the lamb as a gift high-lights the gift of the Lamb of God and foreshadows the image of The Good Shepherd. The soft water color illustrations are perfect for the gentle text. This is a purchase for those libraries in need of a Christmas story which emphasizes the joy of giving.
