The Bethlehem Shepherds (colouring book)

Written by Madeleine Carroll, illustrated by Michelle Pitt

The Bethlehem Shepherds colouring book tells the story of Christmas night through the experience of the shepherds, gently drawing the parallels between the shepherds of Bethlehem and the Good Shepherd Himself.

Having trained and worked as a Montessori Teacher and Catechist for three to six-year-olds with The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, and as a home-schooling mother, author Madeleine Carroll believes in the power of beauty in art and language for forming and inspiring young minds. Her hope is that this colouring book, brought to life by artist Michelle Pitt, may help adults and children to explore the mystery of the Nativity together.

This title is the first in the “Good Shepherd Tales” series, and is the colouring book version—the full-colour storybook edition can be found here.

What a fascinating thing to encourage meditation, etc. Very unique, I think. It would be lovely for children who like to colour.

This is beautiful—and a lovely way to go beyond what we normally talk about with our kids. I also think I'd buy it for my kids' teachers.

I love gorgeous art…. For me, beautiful art has to be paired with text that reads well aloud with a clear theme (catechetical message).
