Today we saw a fantastic nativity, performed by Reception, and this book instantly sprung to mind.
The Little Bookworms loved following the journey of the class in the book as they were assigned parts, made their costumes, practised over and over again, and finally performed to an audience. This made the Little Bookworms reminisce about the parts they played in the nativity last year and a few of them could relate to the shepherd.
The shepherd sings the wrong part, dances the wrong way and forgets when to go off stage. The Little Bookworms could remember exactly how they felt after making mistakes like that in front of their grown ups!
Important Angel is frustrated as the shepherd steals her limelight, yet he couldn’t care less. He has tried his best and made his Granny extremely proud. A truly heartwarming story.
