A Star for Jesus
By Crystal Bowman
Illustrated by Claudine Gevry
What a delightful and precious children’s book for little hands to hold and read! Written in rhyme, this is a fresh retelling of the Christmas story when the star brought the wise men to worship the newborn King, Jesus. It is the perfect introduction to young ears who are hearing the account for the very first time and the perfect way for you to engage young hearts with the mystery and majesty surrounding the birth of the Son of God.
One of the first things that appealed to me about A Star for Jesus is the format. It’s an oversized board book for babies and toddlers that is cut in a unique shape following one of the edges of the star on the cover.
I love Crystal Bowman’s children’s books to begin with, so this new book of hers caught my eye. The soft and beautiful illustrations are the perfect compliment that help brings the text to life. I especially love how the book ends with a gentle reminder to little ones to remember the Christmas star and how God sent His Son to earth each time they see the stars twinkling in the night sky. This will make a wonderful Christmas gift to give this Christmas as well as add to our own collection of Christmas books. Sure to become a favorite with every family!
