My son is really enjoying books. He gets excited over new books and then asks me to read them over and over. Song of the Stars A Christmas Story is special because it talks about how all of God’s creation knew and anticipated the birth of Jesus.
From the bears to the starfish and even the blades of grass all had excitement for “God’s great gift!” The story builds and builds over the wonder every living thing has for the birth of our King.
The illustrations are joyful and rich in color. I really like all the details. I think my son enjoyed the words by Sally Lloyd-Jones as much as he enjoyed the pictures by Alison Jay. When it comes to the Christmas story, it is always fun to read so many interpretations. Song of the Stars will join our collection of books about the true meaning of Christmas which we read all year long!
I have several toddlers on my Christmas shopping list this year, I know I will be picking up another copy of the Song of the Stars to share with them! This would make a great gift for the little ones this Christmas!
About the Book
The skies shouted it to the seas that thundered it to the waves that roared it to the great white whales that sang it to the starfish in the deep. And tiny sandpipers danced it on shining sands… “It’s time! It’s time!” On one quiet night, creation whispered a secret. Grass and bees, robins and trees all spread the word. Sheep told their young while angels sang the song to the shepherds. Hushed news of a miracle echoed to the ends of the earth. The moment had come. The long-awaited child had arrived! Creation cried out in celebration, but only a few people heard. Only a few joined nature’s chorus, a song in praise of the newborn King.
