Have you seen the many reviews for this book in the blogosphere? I, too, received a copy from the author, Anthony DeStefano, in exchange for my opinion of it.
Little Star is a delightful story of the birth of Jesus, told within the story of an insignificant star which burned brightly to warm the newborn King. Although this star’s effort expended him, he is remembered forever as the Star of Bethlehem and is honored by those who decorate their trees with stars.
In the weeks we’ve had our copy, the book has been read many times, often by the older children to the younger ones. It would be a wonderful addition to anyone’s Christmas book library. If you are looking for an inexpensive family gift for someone with young children, I think this would be an appreciated present.
