Little Star: A Delightful Christmas Book for Children

posted by Mark D. Roberts

Sometimes it seems like the Christmas children’s stories mostly have nothing to do with Jesus. There are some wonderful exceptions, of course, like the story told in A Charlie Brown Christmas. Now I have nothing against the secular tales for young folks. I’m a big fan of Rudolf and Elf is one of my favorite Christmas movies. But I always keep my eyes open for fictional stories that reflect or point to the true STORY of Christmas.

I have just discovered a delightful new children’s book that tells the real Christmas story in a delightfully creative way, by focusing on the experience of the star that shone above the the stable in Bethlehem. Little Star, by Anthony DeStafano, is perfect for young children. Mine would have called it a “picture book” not a “chapter book.” The publisher says it’s just right for children ages 4 to 8. It’s 40 pages contain, not only a sweet story, but also fabulous illustrations by Mark Elliott.

So, if you’re looking for a gift for a young child, or if you’re a parent or grandparent or friend of such a child and are looking for a Christian Christmas book, I highly recommend Little Star.

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? Conclusions
In this series on the death of Jesus, I have presented four different perspectives on why Jesus had to die: Roman, Jewish, Jesus’, and Early Christian. I believe that each of these points of view has merit, and that we cannot fully understand the necessity of Jesus’ death without taking them all

Sunday Inspiration from the High Calling
Can We Find God in the City? Psalm 48:1-14 Go, inspect the city of Jerusalem. Walk around and count the many towers. Take note of the fortified walls, and tour all the citadels, that you may describe them to future generations. For that is what God is like. He is our God forever and ever,

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 3
An Act and Symbol of Love Perhaps one of the most startling of the early Christian interpretations of the cross was that it was all about love. It’s easy in our day, when crosses are religious symbols, attractive ornaments, and trendy jewelry to associate the cross with love. But, in the first

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 2
The Means of Reconciliation In my last post, I examined one of the very earliest Christian statements of the purpose of Jesus’ death. According to the tradition encapsulated in 1 Corinthians 15, Jesus died “for our sins in accordance with the scriptures” (15:3). Yet this text doesn’t expl
