A new bedtime tradition that leads kids to the manger!
A Star for Me is a count-your-blessings story that will soon become a beloved bedtime tradition during the holidays. At the beginning of the Christmas season, your children will look forward to reading the book and hanging the ornament on a bottom branch of the Christmas tree. Then your family can enjoy the entire story at once or read a few pages at a time as an Advent countdown.
Each night, children can read a bit more about Oliver, an adorable little camel who is part of the caravan traveling toward Bethlehem. As Oliver learns about Gods blessings on each new page, young readers are prompted to talk about their own blessings and then move the star ornament a bit higher on the tree each night. On Christmas Day, children can move the star all the way to the top of the tree and remember the greatest blessing of allJesus!

Fitzysmom4 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMDecember 8, 2014FitzysmomQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4A Star for Me is the sweet story of Ollie the camel and his family as they journey to Bethlehem with the wisemen. The story is told in a rhyming format that has a fun rhythm and helps the anticipation of the journey build.
Ollie is the youngest in the bunch and has a tendency to get tired and hungry and distracted just like any little one. But throughout the tale his momma reminds him of the importance of the trip. I really enjoyed reading it with the little ones and think that you will enjoy reading it aloud too.
I do have one little caveat that I feel inclined to add. This story ends with the camels and the magi at the stable with the Baby Jesus. If you are a purist and don't like to mix the actual timeframes this book may annoy you. In our house we aren't that strict and put our wisemen with the nativity so it doesn't bother me. As the children get older we explain the timeline of events to them in more detail.
So with that thought in mind, I do endorse this adorable book. It is well written and illustrated and has made a wonderful addition to our collection of Christmas books.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
