5.0 out of 5 stars This book shines November 12, 2011

By Author Lori A. Moore

Not only is this book a treasure, but so is the author. I had the pleasure of meeting her at the Kentucky Book Fair, where I got the book. Tears came to my eyes as I read the beautiful story. The Little Star that Shines for Jesus is well-written, wonderfully illustrated, and hits all the key points that Christians should convey to their children. In the story, the Little Star is given the job of being the light to show the Wise Men the way to Bethlehem for Jesus’ birth. After the Little Star completes that task he worries that he no longer has purpose. But God tells the Little Star that he still has work to do – to tell children how they can shine for Jesus. This book is absolutely adorable, carries a great message, and would make a wonderful gift for a child of any age.

Two new stars are on our horizon:  Little Star and Cindy Peak, children’s author….she shines head and shoulders above most… Each child and adult who reads The Little Star that Shines for Jesus will know that young and old alike can fulfill God’s plan; we can make a difference in our world if we will just shine for Jesus where we are!

A story that will not only have kids looking for Little Star in every starry night, but will have them eagerly wanting to “shine” like he does for Jesus!  Beautifully written and wonderfully illustrated to attract the attention of children as well as to present a gentle challenge.

The Little Star that Shines for Jesus is a delightful retelling of the birth of Jesus from an unexpected point of view.  Because of the perspective… little star leaves one with a feeling of humility and yet shining honor in serving the Lord.
