Mahli’s Sheepskin Jacket – by Edith E. Cutting
This play has six characters with three scenes. Mahli, a young shepherd boy, goes with his father to see baby Jesus. He proudly wears his new sheepskin jacket that his mother made for him. When it is time for him to leave, he decides to give the jacket to Jesus as a gift. He knows it is too big now, but soft enough to lie on. He hopes Jesus will one day grow up to be a shepherd.
