Beautiful Book! Jan 12, 2008
This book is beautifully illustrated. I shared it with my sons first grade class and they loved it so much I donated it to the class. It tells the story of the Nativity as well as the part the 3 Kings play. I especially liked the fact that the people in the story are depicted True to life as African & Arab people. Its refreshing!
A vibrant and thoroughly entertaining retelling of an ageless and classic Christmas story Dec 11, 2005
Intentionally designed to apple to a young African American readership, Three Kings And A Star, written and illustrated by Fred Crump, Jr. (a public school art teacher for more than 30 years and illustrator of more than 40 children's books, all contextualized for African American children), is a vivid retelling of the wise men's journey to find the baby Jesus. This picturebook retelling features Crump's detailed artwork. From the moment Mary discovers she will have a son, to the arrival of the three wise men laying their gifts before the newborn King, this remarkable and enthusiastically recommended picturebook engages the total attention of young readers in a vibrant and thoroughly entertaining retelling of an ageless and classic Christmas story.
Can't wait for Christmas! Sep 24, 2005
I have been a fan of Fred Crump for years, but he has out done himself this time. Three Kings and a Star is so beautiful and is a great variation on the traditional holiday story. I can't wait to read this book to my children over and over again this Christmas.
