Teaching Jude the real meaning of Christmas is very important to me. Every night before bed Jude and I read a few books, most of them a short books for toddlers. I was really excited to read “Little Star” by Anthony DeStefano because it’s such a great story but I was concerned he wouldn’t sit through the entire story. To my surprise he sat and listen intently to every word and even began to point out little star on each page.
I think we may start a new tradition in our home and read the story of Little Star each Christmas Eve. It’s a wonderful story about the birth of Christ and the true meaning of Christmas. the first time I read it I almost cried. I love the perspective of the book.
About Little Star
“I think I understand!” Little Star cried out. “The baby Jesus is a king! He’s just little!”
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, That 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 was about to bring to the world. But what can Little Star do for him? Certain to become a Christmas classic, this delightful tale connects the star atop our Christmas trees to the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus, in the hearts and minds of young children.
