Synopsis

The animals in the farmyard are patiently waiting for a new baby to arrive. Will it be a lamb, a calf or a foal? They wait and wait and as time passes they begin to worry. Will the precious new baby ever arrive?

Then something wonderful happens. As they sleep a beautiful golden star begins to shine over their stable and Mary and Joseph wearily enter and rest their heads in the hay. When the animals awake they find a very special surprise waiting for them.
