Little Star by Anthony DeStefano Giveaway

LIttle Star Little Star
by Anthony DeStefano
Illustrated by Mark Elliott
Publisher: WaterBrook Press
ISBN-13: 9780307458056

About the book:

Little Star is ignored by his fellow luminaries in the sky, but he knows a secret...the child of a lowly carpenter is really the Son of God. As his heart blazes forth with light and love, he gives himself to the newborn king. A delightful story about the star of Bethlehem!

My Review:

This is a precious story about the star that has a special job to do even though he doesn’t realize it for a very long time. It will be a great way for kids and families to use the star they place on the top of the Christmas tree as a reminder of Jesus’ birth.

I also think it will be a good read for those kids who might be smaller than some of the other kids their age. Sometimes, like my oldest son, they feel like they can’t keep up or that they’re looked down on by the bigger kids. It also reminds us that we’re significant in the plans God has for us.

The story is charming and the illustrations are beautiful. I think this would make a wonderful addition to your children’s Christmas library.

There isn't ONE special book I like to read at Christmas, but I love children's/picture books that deal with the Christmas story of Jesus Christ' birth.

The special book we read every Christmas is the story of Jesus' birth from the Bible.

Red Boots for Christmas. I had never heard of this book but saw it advertised on TV when my daughter was small and you could get a free copy. We still have that copy and absolutely LOVE the story. It is truly beautiful. Also, lol, being from the South we like The Cajun Night Before Christmas for fun.
