The book starts out by a boy asking his Dad about the Christmas Star. He tells a story of the smallest star in the farthest corner of the universe that was ignored by the other stars. All the stars are preparing for the birth of a king. A special reward would be given to star that would shine the brightest on that night.
Little Star saw how Mary and Joseph were treated and he saw that people could be unkind too, not just stars. Little Star was the only star who understood that Jesus was the newborn baby king. He shined brighter and brighter leading to the ending-which I won’t give away.
Although it doesn’t follow the true story of Jesus’ birth, it is a cute story.
I enjoyed reading it with my daughter. We have read it twice together. I don’t know if your school participates in the AR program- but this book is an AR book- It is a Book Level 3.5 and is worth 0.5 points. By reading it twice- Gracie can test over it at school. Just an extra FYI if you have a child in school 🙂
