Little Star : Book Review

Enjoying the "Little Star" by Anthony DeSefano
Near the beginning of November, Anthony DeStefano sent us an email to inquire if we would be interested in review his newest book Litte Star to see if our readers would enjoy it. My only regret is that we have not gotten the review up sooner.

Product Description

“I think I understand!” Little Star cried out. “The baby Jesus is a king! He’s just little!”

A king is about to be born! The stars in the heavens are competing to shine the brightest to celebrate his birth. But when they see the poor family, the donkey, the shabby stable, the stars all think, That can’t possibly be a king. We’ve been fooled.

All except one. The smallest, loneliest star in the sky, Little Star, is the only one to understand what the king was about to bring to the world. But what can Little Star do for him?

Certain to become a Christmas classic, this delightful tale connects the star atop our Christmas trees to the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus, in the hearts and minds of young children. 

In House Review

There are not very many books that our youngest child will sit through, he just doesn't have the interest typically to listen all the way through. This book however is different. All through reading the story he was interacting and pointing out things in the pictures that the story described and even better was the relation to reality when he pointed to the star on our Christmas tree and asked "is that little star".

This book is a hit that all of the kids enjoyed and will be treasured among our Christmas and Advent Traditions for years to come!
