Song of the Stars- a book review

Song

On one quiet night, creation whispered a secret.  Grass and bees, robins and trees all spread the word.  Sheep told their young while angels sang the song to the shepherds.  Hushed news of a miracle echoed to the ends of the earth.  The moment had come.  The long-awaited child has arrived!  Creation cried out in celebration, but only a few people heard.  Only a few joined nature’s chorus, a song in praise of the newborn King.

Song of Stars is a beautiful rendition of the greatest story ever told; The birth of Jesus Christ!  Excitement builds as the animals and the earth eagerly awaits the coming of the messiah as a baby.  The beautiful illustrations and adorning words allow the reader to feel the exuberance of the coming of our Savior.

This is the perfect book for this Christmas season and reminds our littlest humans what the true meaning of Christmas is.
