Book DescriptionBeautiful illustrations and playful rhyming text bring the story of Jesus’ birth to life for young children in A Star for Jesus. This board book, die-cut to enhance the shape of the star on the front cover, is the perfect gift to help little ones understand that "God made the stars and put them up high to shine down on earth from up in the sky." And long ago God also made a special star to send a special message: "Jesus our Savior has come."
About the Author
Crystal Bowman loves writing books for kids. Her books come in all shapes and sizes and many of them have become best sellers. Whether her stories are written in playful rhythm and rhyme, or short sentences for beginning readers, she tries to make them so enjoyable that kids will want to read them over and over again.

About the Illustrator
You can find Claudine diving the oceans with Technicolor fish, camel riding in the Sahara, trekking in a jungle populated with wild monkeys, or exploring the African savanna in search of huge elephants. Although adventurous, she sometimes gets scared when coming upon a giant spider or other scary beasts. At that time she heads back to the comfort of her studio, where she draws all the wonderful things she saw and dreams of her next visit to faraway lands.
A Star for Jesus is a nice chunky cut board book just the side for preschool age kids hands. This book would make an excellent addition to your holiday book reading selection. Ideal for preschool age but beginning readers would love to read this easy rhyming story about a star. A beautiful Christmas message for children 2-8. The illustrations are bright and cheerful and the message is as clear as the stars. The author very strongly presents the true message of Christmas in this book. I would highly recommend this book and I'm adding this to the church nursery books. Very very awesome book.
