Product Description

I have come to your home from a land far away to tell you a true story. It's a story of something that happened in my little town many years ago..."

The Little Lamb from Bethlehem tells the story of Jesus's miraculous birth from the perspective of one of the lambs in the stable on that sacred night. The lamb loved baby Jesus, and as they both grew, the lamb promised to share Christ's story with everyone. Now the Little Lamb can teach your family about the Savior's life and share ways to follow His example and serve others throughout the Christmas season. Make Christmas more meaningful as you use this little plush lamb to learn of the Savior, serve others, and celebrate the true spirit of the season with this new Christ-centered tradition!

Bring your lamb home today to begin a Christmas tradition that your children will remember for years to come!

Ideas to get started:

  • Once a week leading up to Christmas, invite a new friend to dinner with your family, and share Little Lamb's story of the Savior with them.
  • Include the lamb in the nativity scene you act out with your family.
  • Create a photo album with the Little Lamb as you take it to do service at a nursing home.
  • Read Luke 2:13-14.

Designed to fit your family's needs!

  • Weekly or daily activity options available (ideas enclosed)
  • Or choose to use the lamb as a simple reminder of the season

More ideas:

  • Give the Little Lamb a note every day expressing love for a family member, and leave hi for that family member to find.
  • Each Sunday during December, give the Little Lamb a favorite scripture to hold during the day and then read it with your family that night.
  • Read John 13:15 and talk about the ways to be the kind of person Jesus would be.
  • Hang a stocking for Jesus and fill it with notes for Him.

Family Favorite

This lovely Christmas book is a family favorite and will be a tradition for many years to come. Our 15 Grandchildren are all getting their own copies because they have begged for the cuddly soft lamb to take to bed at night and the book is perfect for little hands. The timeless illustrations are exquisite! It's especially wonderful to know that one of our grandsons was the model for the Baby Jesus! God Bless Us Everyone! Thank you Deseret Book for producing this classic in such an endearing format.

My husband and I purchased Little Lamb of Bethlehem, and were deeply disappointed by what we got for the amount we spent. The lamb is not good quality, and neither is the book. The box it comes in makes it seem grander than it actually is. The illustrations are really poor... just really sad. Love the concept, wishing it was executed better.

Too Cute for Just One Child

I bought this cute Little Lamb and book set for my youngest grandson. He loves stuffed animals. But the Little Lamb from Bethlehem is far and away his favorite. He sleeps, eats, gets diaper changes, and, yes even bathes with it. The book is so well illustrated and is a darling story. When I pull out the book to read to my grandson, he always pushes the book aside (but I still read it to myself because I love it!), and cuddles with Little Lamb. Last Friday, my other grandchildren became a bit jealous of my youngest, and in hindsight I should have bought them each Little Lamb as well. Sadly they took Little Lamb and ran him over with the lawn mower. All that was left of Little Lamb was a pile of fluff. It was heartbreaking to see Tommy Jr crying over his lost Little Lamb. But, to my thrill, Tommy Jr took his dirty diaper and threw it at his cousins. It was direct hit! Because I was laughing hysterically at the messy kids, I got assigned the task of hosing them down. Oh well. There's a moral here, but I can't put my finger on it. Maybe it's that if you have young children or grandchildren, buy them each their own Little Lamb.

Oh I just love this new Christmas tradition using the Little Lamb to do acts of service as we count down the days before Christmas. The book has a beautiful story with colorful pictures. It gives us ideas of how we can serve each other. It has scripture references on each page. the actual stuffed lamb is so cuddly and soft. Everyone of the children ;that has held the Little Lamb wants one of their own!
