This movie is a very innocent, heartwarming approach to the Greatest Story ever told. It is given through the eyes of a small boy in such a way that children can understand and relate to it. A wonderful Christmas addition.

I thought that this would be the movie I remember that's played on TV every year with the Drummer Boy helping the old man with the bells. I guess that's part 2. This DVD is part 1, which I've probably seen but didn't really remember. The Drummer Boy gets kidnapped by a street performer and is forced to play even though he hates ALL people (because people killed his parents?!) At one point his lamb gets run over by a cart and he goes to find the 3 kings, who he hopes can heal the lamb. In the end he meets the baby Jesus and all is well. It was a bit cheesy.
