On a cold winter's night in Bethlehem, an innkeeper calls his animals into the stable. They make such a noise that they frighten little Larry Lamb away. It’s a far from silent night in the stable – until Mary and Joseph arrive, bringing peace among the animals.
Meanwhile, Larry Lamb has run so far that he’s lost and alone. A donkey, a camel and a sheep dog pass by - but none can help Larry get home as they don’t know where he lives. ‘You should have stayed with your mummy!’ they all tell him. At last an angel guides Larry home. In the stable he is reunited with his mother,surprised to see the animals he met while lost and meets baby Jesus. Everyone celebrates noisily, and once again it’s NOT such a silent night!
‘Very effective and enjoyable, but simple to learn and direct. The children engaged with the songs from day one and parents reported much singing in the backs of cars!’ Libbie Noakes - Teacher, Hampshire.
