Little Star—A Beautiful Christmas Tale
When Anthony DeStefano contacted me asking if I wanted to take a look at his second children’s book titled Little Star, I enthusiastically replied I would.
Not only does Little Star creatively depict a profound and tender message about the first Christmas, but the captivating illustrations invite readers to linger on each page. The book evokes deeper reflection about the One who came into the world in the form of a little baby. A King here to save.
In this sweet book only one little star recognizes the arrival of a true King. Only one little star understands this king’s message of love. What does this little star do in light of understanding? He does what stars do best—he shines with everything he’s got.
I appreciate how Little Star points to the integrity of humility—how God uses the weak and lowly to radiate His light.
This wonderfully woven story encourages little ones and adults alike to consider the beauty of our Savior’s birth.
Little Star—a worthwhile read this holiday season.
