A Star for Jesus by Crystal Bowman

"One special night, a long time ago,
a new start appeared with a radiant glow."

I have no real words for this oversized board book by Crystal Bowman.

It is completely adorable and that's about that.  It is a perfect short stanza rhyme for toddlers with a comprehensive story line, from the appearance of the star and the wisemen to the importance of remembering that special star today.  

I also love that this book is a full 11.5" tall, with the star cut out of the side.  It is much larger than other board books, which seems to draw my 2 year old's attention to it each time she visits the bookshelf. The publisher's recommended age is 4-8, but I would put it as more than appropriate for ages 1-3 as well.  

"So next time you look at the stars shining bright,
remember the star that glowed in the night" 

I was provided with a free copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review, through the BookLook Bloggers program.
