Meet the up-and-coming Persia’s Traveling Band—or PTB, as their fans call them—who are out on “their biggest tour yet!” with their little “roadie” Abel. Along the way, they meet three Wise Men, who are following a star in search for a King who has just been born. With the possibility of playing for a Royal audience, PTB decides to join the Wise Men and make the journey to Bethlehem. After all, what better way for the band to be discovered and rise to the top the charts than playing for a King?

During this fantastic journey, the little dude named Abel, who is sort of a ‘roadie’ for PTB, unveils his passion for playing the drums. While the band does not take his playing seriously, the Wise Men notice his talent and encourage his efforts, knowing that he has a very special gift. One of the Wise Men expresses to Abel that perhaps he might even get to play his drum for the King…Will Abel get his wish??

To learn the outcome—and finally get to meet this King to be born in Bethlehem—you’ll have to come along on the journey with Abel, Persia’s Traveling Band, the three Wise Men, and Abel’s fantastically whacky and fun camel, Hakim! Through The Little Drummer Dude, each and every kid in your children’s ministry will learn that God can do amazing things through everyone, even if they are “just a little dude.”
