Sure, the angels told the shepherds that Jesus had been born, but when John said, We beheld His glory, it would seem that theres an implicit invitation to use our imaginations a bit, and Sally Lloyd-Jones has accepted that invitation! Song of the Stars pictures the occasion of Jesus birth as an evening of breathless anticipation and enthusiastic sharing of the news: Its time! Its time! Everyone from barn owls to great white whales and every single blade of grass makes the announcement, causing me to think, Yes, this is what the earnest expectation of the creation would really look like if only we took time to notice.
Its difficult to say who will be more enthralled with Alison Jays cracked oil illustrations tiny lovers of board books or their folk art loving parents. With pointy-headed bears sniffing the air and primitive, squared-off sheep nuzzling their lambs with dreams of The Good Shepherd, Song of the Stars is a delight for the eyes as well as for the heart.
The suspense builds with each turn of the page until its resolution in a little shed as the animals gather around the manger and hear the pronouncement:
The One who made us has come to live with us!
Now, theres enough theology to fill a much larger volume and to overflow into a warm celebration of Advent for any family who is watching the calendar, crossing off the days, and waiting in breathless anticipation for the celebration of Jesus birth.
