Review:Little Star by:Anthony DeStefano
About the Book:
Tonight a king will be born, and all the stars in heaven are competing to see who can shine the brightest for him. But when the stars see the poor family huddling in the shabby stable, they begin to think that this baby couldn't be a king after all!
That is, all the stars except the smallest, loneliest star in the sky, Little Star. He recognizes the baby Jesus as the King of kings and understands His special message of love. Read on to discover the extraordinary way Little Star serves his King on that cold, dark night.
Certain to become a Christmas classic, this delightful tale connects the star atop the Christmas tree to the true meaning of Christmas--the birth of Jesus.

Christmas is right around the corner. It seems like every year it gets closer and closer. And every year it seems that the reminder needs to be given again and again, to remind everyone what the real reason for Christmas really is. The Little Star is about a little tiny star that thought he couldn't possibly be picked to get a special reward when the king was born. As small as he was and as unspecial as he felt, he would never be picked.
Just as the events leading up to the kings birth unfolded right there for the little star to see, he soon realized what special message that the newborn king was trying to show all people. After realizing this message of a Savior, the Little Star shown as bright as he could so that everyone could find the King, it wasn't long before he burnt himself out. Soon the little boy in the beginning of the story finds out that even though what happens to the Little Star is sad, his story doesn't end there.
The illustrations in the book are sweet and soft as it tells of our King and Savior's birth. Christmas is all about the birth of that child and how he done something for us that none of us will ever repay and all he asks in return is to believe in Him and love Him. What an amazing gift!
