The Christmas Star
Marcus Pfister

Review by: Ellen Dragonetti

     Watch as we see The Christmas Star guide us to Bethlehem to see the Holy Child. Marcus Pfister brings us all to the manger where Jesus lay, along with the shepards, kings and forest animals. This all happens with the help of the beautiful, magical, shining holograms that captivated our children in Pfisters previous books such as Rainbow Fish.
     Children 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 how " people longed for a time of harmony among nations." What better time to read this tale than now-and for children to understand how a child could show us "the way to peace". Pfister includes the animals in the retelling of the birth of Christ, and how they were drawn by the light of The Christmas Star to Bethlehem.
      Children 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.
