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, “This 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 is about to bring to the world. But what can Little Star do for him?
I love reading to my kids. Shoot, I still crawl into bed and read with my 6th-grader! So when I find a book worthy of kid-reading, I like to recommend it. That’s how I feel about Anthony DeStefano’s book, Little Star.
We’ve already established that I stink at writing book reviews. So rather than come up with clever wording to describe its content and value, I’ll simply say, this is a sweet book and you should get it for the kid on your Christmas list. All of the Cooper kids have read it and love it. In fact, every time I sit down to write this post, I have to go searching for the actual book, because inevitably, one of my sweet children has snatched it from my desk to read and left it elsewhere. And I’ve set down no less than five times to write this post in the last week. So, that’s sayin’ something.
And if my endorsement isn’t good enough for you, here is a video of Pat Boone reading the book to some cute little kids.
Leave me a comment telling me what Christmas song gets you in the Christmas mood more than any other. If you do, I will enter you in a drawing to win a copy of this book (on my dime…I’m keeping the free copy the author sent me!). Remember to leave your e-mail address so I can contact you.
By the way, the song that does it for me is the Bruce Springsteen’s version of Santa Claus is Coming to Town. I know, I’m weird.
I’ll announce winners on Monday, December 6th. Have a great weekend!
