Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0972865462, Hardcover)The Holidays comes once a year, but here is a Christmas story that will be a delight to open any month of the year. SAMSON'S GIFT wraps the historic 'Babe in the Manger' tale in a new cloak, and what a cloak it is; made of wool fit for a King. Its donor, Samson, is an orphaned lamb, adopted by Tedra, a shepherd's daughter. As Samson matures, his unusually fine wool is due to be sheared, but thanks to Tedra, his protector, he escapes the shears. Three Wise Men who have followed a special star illuminates a nearby stable in which they find a baby laid in a manger full of prickly straw, wrapped in strips of cloth torn from the parent's clothing. Samson volunteers his precious wool to protect the newborn. At the conclusion of this inspirational story about giving your best gift and giving for the right reason, is a glossary of sheep facts. Young and old will delight in the author's 24 empathetic paintings. Ellen, the artist and illustrator of the book, knows her subject well having grown up on a farm and currently resides in Fargo, North Dakota.
