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!” On one quiet night, creation whispered a secret. Grass and bees, robins and trees all spread the word. Sheep told their young while angels sang the song to the shepherds. Hushed news of a miracle echoed to the ends of the earth. The moment had come. The long-awaited child had arrived! Creation cried out in celebration, but only a few people heard. Only a few joined nature’s chorus, a song in praise of the newborn King.

Customer Reviews of Song Of The Stars: A Christmas Story

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Christmas Story - Beautiful Art Sally Lloyd-Jones is a proven children's author--I have thoroughly enjoyed her other work, so I knew I was in good hands with this book. The basis of the "Song of the Stars" tale is the Christmas story. On every page, eager, adorable animals burst with anticipation. The artwork attracted me to the book; the words kept my attention. I loved everything about this book--the carefully chosen words; the cute, tubby, and friendly animals; the layout of the art and text; and the detail on every page. Readers can spend time slowly exploring the picture before flipping the page. Song of the Stars is definitely a book to keep out for the Christmas season. I will be keeping an eye out for other books by Lloyd-Jones. So far I love all of her work.

Editorial Reviews

'The Psalms tell us that the created order now declares the glory of God (Psalms 19 and 65) and that when Jesus returns even the trees will sing for joy (Psalm 96). How fitting, then, to imagine the animals and stars sensing and rejoicing in the coming of Christ the first time. This is a lovely book!' -- Tim Keller, , Pastor
