Michael, The little shepherd makes good.
1 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a movie I remember seeing as a little girl, not when it first came out but in reruns. I loved this simple story of Michael who discovers even though he is small he has a lot to offer. As events change his world as he knows it. He meets a slew of Heavenly people to help him adjust along the way. With the help of Patience (His Guardian Angel) he decides the best thing to do is to try to fit in. By doing so he is bestowed the ultimate gift due to his unselfishness. The props, and the look of this film is a bit to be desired, but the story fits right into the Christmas mood and the music will stay with you for years. It is the most endearing memory I have of this film. Listen to the words,sing along with the songs and enjoy the story of The Littlest Angel.
