This book is wonderful for children, young adult, and adults. I highly recommend for a fresh view of the familiar Christmas story.

A little star in the night sky wants to be special and part of something big. He gets his wish and shines brightly as an announcement to all about a special birth.

The illustrations are charming and whimsical. The stars feeling of wanting more and being special like other stars in the sky is relatable for most.

Although I understand the feeling of wanting and waiting to be special I feel like the the telling of the story was lacking. I wanted the story telling to match the adorable imagery and it

The Star is a delightful tale of a star looking for it's purpose and wishing to be great. The dark illustrations with their barely there shadow trees in some cases and their easier to see colorful pictures in others make the book. I also love that the book introduces several constellations and explains the Star of Bethlehem. I would definitely recommend this book to small children. (I received this in a goodreads giveaway.) ...more

The story was cute, however the design was dis-jointed. Some stuff was clearly clip-art style artwork from Adobe Illustrator mixed in with art other people had drawn. The font for the story was fine, but a terrible font was used in some of the illustrations.

I did get this book from a give-away.

I didn't like the illustration style. I liked the first part about stars and felt there was some sort of stigma at at the end about small and/or shooting star. ...more

I absolutely adored this. I gave it to my niece and nephew after reading it myself. Such a sweet story about a star with a very important purpose. A great story for around Christmas time.
