Book Review :: Song of the Stars: A Christmas Story (Board Book) by Sally Lloyd-Jones, paintings by Alison Jay

The Song of the Stars board book is a new book from Sally Lloyd-Jones, illustrated by Alison Jay. (You may know Sally Lloyd-Jones as the author of The Jesus Storybook Bible and Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing.) There is a previous version of the Song of the Stars (available for Kindle and in a hard cover) that I do not own, so I cannot compare the different versions.
The Song of the Stars board book is written in Sally Lloyd-Jones' rich literary style (not the typical simple phrases that you might find in a board book). This is also not a typical Christmas story re-telling...you won't find the names Mary, Joseph, or Jesus in this book. (Jesus and Mary are referenced, but not by those names.) It is, however, a beautiful depiction of the excitement and joy that surrounded Jesus' arrival on earth.

The Song of the Stars is a beautiful book and it is definitely a great one to keep on hand for the Christmas season (or any time of year, really).
FTC Declaration: The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy. This does not change the fact that I will give my honest opinion in my reviews.
