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.
Any moving Christmas books you'd like to share?

*I was given this book without anything asked of me. I wanted to write this review.


  1. Oh, I'm so thankful the Lord is getting His message out through talented men like Anthony. My husband just published a Christmas read-along advent story for children, Hickory Hog and the Christmas Rascal. It's a humorous, heart-warming tale of how a spunky hog saved... oh, never mind, I'm spoiling the ending. Go to and type in the title to purchase it.

    Love you,

  2. Sounds like a sweet holiday read! Thanks for sharing Wendy!

  3. I must get this book. Thanks for sharing about it.

  4. Oh, looks precious! I already have in mind who I can give this to for Christmas. Thanks, Wendy!


  5. Awesome! I love books like this--thank you!

  6. What a sweet cover, and the message sounds beautiful. Thanks!

  7. Hi Wendy -

    The cover alone drew me in, and your review cinched it. :)


  8. Oh, I think C.S. Lewis' The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe makes a fascinating holiday read. But of course, you would have to read it over a period of days!

  9. I can't wait for my baby girl to get old enough to truly enjoy books like these! :)
