Song of the Stars: A Christmas Story by Sally Lloyd-Jones ~ Christmas Gift Guide for Children

Sally Lloyd-Jones
Juvenile Fiction / Christmas

The skies shouted it to the seas that thundered it to 
the waves that roared it to the great white whales
that sang it to the starfish in the deep.

And tiny sandpipers danced it on shining sands . . .

"It's time! It's time!"

The entire universe is breathless with anticipation . . .The joyous news spreads out across fields, deserts, oceans--from stars, to trees, to robins, to flowers. Sheep tell their young. Angels sing to the shepherds. And together they all join in nature's great chorus of praise to the newborn King. The long-awaited child has come!

My Thoughts

Since it was first released, Song of the Stars, has been a favorite in our family. We all adore the beautiful illustrations of the creation and creatures as they listen to God and the angels declare that "It's time!". 

I especially like how the anticipation builds and builds as the story goes along. I find myself reading it aloud softly at first and then as the big event gets closer and closer my voice rises in volume and intensity. When I look around at our family we all seem to be leaning in towards the story as if helping the event along.

If you are looking for a new Christmas book for your little ones this year, I can't recommend this one highly enough. It truly is destined to become a Christmas classic.
