ages 2-7 love to see and touch the glimmering foil stamped stars on each
page, as the Christmas story is retold. Pfister retells this story of

can relate to the pictures of the lion laying down among the sheep, and
the fox with the hare. Such gentle, soft pictures make you feel safe and
calm-what a wonderful break from all the holiday madness to sit and read
The Christmas Star with your child. Certainly one they will look forward
to reading year, after year.
