A delightful Christmas tale of a young servant boy who becomes a hero when he rescues a Baby King_for ages 4-8 This charming story for children ages four to eight is about Jacob, a young orphan who is a servant in Herod's kitchen. One afternoon when the cook's son comes after him with a stick, Jacob slips into a hiding place in the rafters above the throne room. There he overhears some strange men telling Herod about a new king who has been born nearby. Jacob wants to see the new king himself, so he follows the strangers to their caravan campsite and hides himself in a rolled-up rug. The caravan takes off and soon Jacob finds himself at a dusty little house on the edge of a village where the strangers bow before a baby in its mother's arms. This is a different kind of king; in his kingdom, the great and small stand side by side. Jacob hears the strangers talk of the warning they received in a dream and returns to Herod's palace where he realizes that the new baby king is in danger. He runs all the way to Bethlehem to warn Mary and Joseph. Drama and humor combine in this delightful story that teaches how even the tiniest child can serve God and worship the baby born King.
