Reviews - What do customers think about The Christmas Star?

great book for young children!  Nov 16, 2008
The title is 'The Christmas Star' but the star is not the focus of this book. The Star of Bethlehem is on most of the pages but that is because it is leading everyone to the Holy Child,Jesus Christ!
Beautiful book!  Jan 15, 2006
This book has the most beatuiful pictures and explains Christmas wonderfully!
A disappointment  Dec 26, 2005
There may be good Christmas books out there, but this isn't one of them. I bought it for my grandson to go with the Little People manger set. It doesn't really tell the Christmas story, however. Concentration on the star and not the baby Jesus. The text isn't suitable for a young child either--too many big words.
Simply Told  Sep 5, 2004
(original review: Sept. 4, 2004) I looked high and low to find a Christmas book for my nephew's first Christmas. Several of them had fine points. Whether it was the lush illustrations, funny stories about Santa or that they told truly heart warming stories. The problem was that I wanted a children's book that focused on why we celebrate Christmas, without adding "characters" or being told from an animal's point of view. This book does just that. I think younger children will be drawn to the glittery stars and the Kings treasures and it will be a nice read for them as they get older.

(update: January 30, 2006) I would like to clarify that my original review was based on the hardcover edition of this book ISBN: 1-55858-203-7, not the board book. I am not familiar with the board book version and do not know if it contains the same text as the hardcover version, which is intended for children 4 - 8 years of age. The title is "The Christmas Star" but the star is not the focus of this book. The Star of Bethlehem is on most of the pages but that is because it is leading everyone to the Holy Child. This book is not about Mary and Joseph's journey to Bethlehem, instead, the focus is on the pilgrimage that took place because of His birth. Not sure if this book is for you, check your local library for a copy....then buy five copies, as I did!
The Christmas Star-Pure elegance  May 23, 2000
This book is a fluent read about the birth of Jesus. The pictures add a touch of dreamy take me back in time feel. This is a must have story for the holiday season.
