Little Star

This review is a little overdue. Back in December I received the book "Little Star" By Anthony DeStefano in the mail and quickly sat down with Kensley to read it to her. I picked to review this book because 1). It's a children's book and because Kensley just loves reading new books and 2). Lord knows I don't have time to read a book that doesn't have pictures. I hope to one day get back to reading for me but I haven't found that time in 3 years.

Anyway, I was interested in "Little Star" because it is a tale about the Christmas star that led the 3 wise men to baby Jesus. I am always trying to find books for Kensley that tell the story of the birth of Jesus. I want her to realize and understand the true reason for the season. I think this book accomplishes that and more. We must have read the book over 50 times this holiday and I am sure it will be one that we read again and again during the Christmas season. I highly recommend "Little Star" by Anthony DeStefano to anyone who is looking for a great book that puts a new spin on the birth of Jesus by telling the adorable story of the Christmas star.

*I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
