Nathan wants to be a shepherd like his father but he also loves to craft beautiful figures from wood and wool he collects on the hills.
In this unique version of the nativity story, beautifully illustrated by Sanne Dufft, Nathan must give up his crafts to learn to be a good shepherd. But when an angel announces a special child has been born he has no gifts to bring him. What can Nathan do?
The soft, vivid illustrations, full of gentle wonder and joy, make this a perfect gift for young children.
