Songs of the Stars: A Christmas Story
Author: Sally Lloyd & Illustrator: Alison Jay
Song of the Stars is a beautiful, well-written book that describes the birth of Christ. The animals and the earth are eagerly watching for the birth, knowing the time has come; and the reader is drawn into the excitement of the coming Messiah in the form of a baby. 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 had 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.
