Song of the Stars

by Sally Lloyd-Jones

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Song of the Stars is a beautiful, well-written book that describes the birth of Christ. The animals and the earth are eagerly watching for the birth, knowing the time has come; and the reader is drawn into the excitement of the coming Messiah in the form of a baby.

This is a lovely book for families to read with their children, especially those who have children ages 4 and up, although even the younger children will enjoy the beautifully painted pictures of animals, landscapes, the baby Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. Song of the Stars is a wonderful book to teach children about Christ and to remind us all of the beauty of the true story of Christmas. – Jennifer Joneleit,

Book Jacket:

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.
