Blogging for Books- Little Star

Posted by Heather at Saturday, February 05, 2011
Little Star by Anthony DeStefano is a children’s Christmas story about the star that shown down brightly on baby Jesus, on the night of his birth. Soft, beautiful illustrations by Mark Elliott help to depict the story of Little Star, as told by a father to his son. Little Star is small and mostly ignored by the other stars. Then, on the night of Jesus’ birth, Little Star’s curiosity and eventually his understanding of the true meaning of Christ’s birth, lead to Little Star’s bright, shining status. Themes of love, small but mighty and even the abstract idea of communion and Christ’s crucifixion are woven into the storyline. Little Star is a nice addition to any family’s Christmas collection of books.
