long, long time ago, a little girl named Dorothy lived with her parents
and brothers. Her brother were much older than she and spent most
of their time with the flock of sheep that the family owned. Dorothy
loved bringing her brothers food and water while they were out in the fields.
When she noticed a group of strangers passing by, she was afraid that they
were robbers. But, she learned that a law was passed that all citizens
must return to their place of birth to be taxed. So the road was now filled
with people heading out. Then one night, her brothers saw an angel
and were told of the birth of a king. They set out to see him.
Dorothy wanted to go along but knew her brothers would say no. So
she secretly followed them. But she had no gift for the newborn king.
Do you have any idea of who Dorothy would see when she arrived?
