THE PRINCESS AND THE BABY
A long time ago in Egypt, there was a young Hebrew girl named Miriam. Her family had just had a beautiful baby boy. There was a big problem, though.

For months, Miriam’s mom hid the newborn baby from the Egyptians. But soon he was too big to hide. So, they came up with a plan to save the baby—they would put him in a basket and float him down a stream where the Pharaoh’s daughter was known to often bathe or wash clothes. They knew he would be safe if the princess found him and had compassion on him. They crafted a waterproof basket out of reeds and clay so the baby would be protected from the water. Miriam was instructed to secretly keep watch from the bank and make sure he made it to safety. This was a big responsibility for a kid; the life of her little brother was in her hands!
