A Bellwether Christmas: A Novel by Laurel Guillen from Fidelis Publishing. In this warm, delightful Christmas tale, a 13th-century lamb named Bart wants to know more about a mysterious man from the town of Assisi who talks to animals.
Bart and his friends face challenges and danger, learn the meaning of love, honor, and sacrifice, and help start the tradition of the Christmas crèche we still enjoy today.
My Opinion: Unless you are familiar with the historical events in Greccio, Italy, in 1223 when St. Francis of Assisi designed the first Nativity scene that then gave rise to the Christian (and even secular) tradition of putting Nativity scenes on display in churches, town squares, and home mantel pieces. You might not understand this book very well but the story was cute and showed love, compassion, understanding, and more.
