Since it was first released, Song of the Stars, has been a favorite in our family. We all adore the beautiful illustrations of the creation and creatures as they listen to God and the angels declare that "It's time!".
I especially like how the anticipation builds and builds as the story goes along. I find myself reading it aloud softly at first and then as the big event gets closer and closer my voice rises in volume and intensity. When I look around at our family we all seem to be leaning in towards the story as if helping the event along.
If you are looking for a new Christmas book for your little ones this year, I can't recommend this one highly enough. It truly is destined to become a Christmas classic.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
This is a great book with a wonderful message- all of God's creation worships him. I just wish there were more pages with more words.... the price is steep and was hoping a book more like the Jesus Storybook. We were done reading it in about 2 minutes.... we will read it again, but still wishing it was a little cheaper. But all in all, a nice one to add to the Christmas collection of kids books!
I read a story every year for our group gift exchange. It was a perfect book with beautiful illustrations and a meaningful story of Christ's birth. I would pass it on to my granddaughter, but I marked it up for our gift exchange game.
