This is a retelling of the nativity story through the eyes of a young girl. Using her ingenuity, Rachel outsmarts the Roman soldiers who have come to her father’s inn looking for a new-born baby boy. Her brave actions allow her new friends to escape.

Burbidge’s simple yet compelling text is warm and personal. The 23-page booklet includes colour photographs of original fabric cut-outs created by Melanie Vanderzwet that help to illustrate the story.
