Lila the sheepdog and Ima the goat spend their days and nights protecting and herding their master's flock, careful never to stray too far from home...until the night a brilliant star appears in the eastern sky. When swarms of angels - invisible to humans, but not to animals - begin flocking toward the star, Lila and Ima decide to follow with their flock. Fraught with hunger and fear, the journey guides them to the town of Bethlehem, where something extraordinary has occurred. Penned by an animal behavior expert, Certain Poor Shepherds offers a unique and poignant perspective on the Nativity, a thoughtful tale for readers ages 8 and up. (KG)
