I was just given the awesome opportunity to read "Little Star" by Anthony DeStefano. This is a children's book that focuses on the Star of Bethleham.
A little boy asks his father how to find the Christmas star. His father then tells him the story of the Little Star. The littlest star in the sky might not be the brightest. Or the prettiest. Or even the one you would ever expect to be much of anything. But it seems that those are always the ones that Jesus chooses. This book is great for children as it really teaches them to just be who you are. God can use you no matter who you are, or where you are in life. If you just believe in Him, He can do great things with your life! Since the Little Star believed Jesus was the King, he was the only one with the ability to shine bright enough just for Him. It's a great Christmas read, and definitely one we will keep on our bookshelf to pull out each Christmas to read to the children. I highly recommend it.
The illustrations are exceptional as well. The pictures of Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus come to life right on the pages! The pictures were enough to keep my little one entertained. And believe me, that's saying a lot! :)
Just to be clear, I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. However, that was no basis on this review. It really is a great book!
