Little Angel can't go to Bethlehem with the other angels because she hasn't got her wings yet. At first she is sad, but then - determined to see baby Jesus - she sets off on foot. On her way, she helps a donkey, a lamb and a dove, all of whom are in difficulty. When she gets to the stable in Bethlehem Little Angel hesitates, realising that – unlike the kings and shepherds – she has nothing to give the baby. But Mary explains that she does have a gift – the gift of love, which is the best gift of all. At last, because of the love she gave to others during her journey, Little Angel gets her wings!
