Little Star - Anthony DeStefano. The enchanting illustrations by Mark Elliott compliment the author's text perfectly.

Anthony M. DeStefano. I am a NYC journalist, as well as the author of several books. Had a great book talk on "Gotti's Boys" with famed author and screen writer Nick Pileggi as we talked about the Mafia and our experiences covering Wise Guys over all these years. As luck would have it, Nick is holding a copy of my "The Big Heist" which is based on the Lufthansa robbery of 1978, a story at the core of Nick's screenplay (with Martin Scorsese) for the masterful film "Goodfellas.

“I think I understand!” Little Star cried out. “The baby Jesus is a king! He’s just little!” A king is about to be born! The stars in the heavens are competing to shine the brightest to celebrate his birth. But when they see the poor family, the donkey, the shabby stable, the stars all think, That can’t possibly be a king. We’ve been fooled.All except one. The smallest, loneliest star in the sky, Little Star, is the only one to understand what the king was about to bring to the world. But what can Little Star do for him? Certain to become a Christmas classic, this delightful tale connects the star atop our Christmas trees to the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus, in the hearts and minds of young children.

Sadie is my two year old daughter and she is passionate about books, in a typical two-year old sort of way. She loves the books that she loves and she can not stand to look at the books that she doesn't love and will take them from my hand and toss them back towards the shelf (we talk about being nice to books a lot). And the books that are on her favorites list, may not stay there for long (she went from being in love with "Are You My Mother" to crying when she saw it on the bookshelf all in one week). So when I introduce a new book I never know what the outcome will be.

Little Star passed the Sadie test with flying colors. She sits and listens to it. She even went over and went through the books on the shelf and found it and brought it to me so that I would read it to her. It has become a holiday (and I have a feeling year round) favorite.

Little Star's story is one of sacrifice. It begins with a father telling his son the story of the Christmas star, which shown so brightly in the sky above Bethlehem on the night that Jesus was born. Little Star, as you can probably tell by his name, was not the biggest or the brightest of the stars in the sky, and was ignored by everyone. However, the fact that he was small helped him to see what the other stars missed on that first Christmas night and led him to make a sacrifice so great that he will never be forgotten and is part of Christmas celebrations to this day.

This sweet book with beautiful illustrations is a great addition to any Christmas library!

I did not know of this book until our priest read it instead of a sermon on christmas eve mass in Reston, Va. Two masses were going on simultaneously and the both priests agreed not to preach but rather read this story after inviting all the children to come down to the front of the church and sit on the steps. The church was lit with 2 Christmas trees with all the lights on except the stars on top; something I did not immediately notice. Father sat on a stool in fromt of the altar, showed off his christmas socks and proceeded to tell the story. When it came to the ending where everyone who decorates a Christmas tree and lights up the star on top, Father gestured to the trees and magically the star-topped tree lights came on. It brought tears to my eyes and was such a moving way to deliver the Christmas message. After mass, I went home and ordered a copy of read to my grandchildren. Since then whenever they come to my house for an overnight, we have read the story.
It is a simple and heartfelt story without any commercialism or a hidden agenda. It is a story about love, faith, courage, acceptance and strength.

I highly recommend it because it is a universal in its appeal.

My family is concerned that the real Christmas star, the Star of Bethlehem from Matthew's gospel, has been eclipsed and replaced by a well-meaning little star that shone briefly and "died" on Christmas morning.

For centuries the "Christmas star" has referred to the one that led the Three Kings from the East to the Christ Child, "and so it continued both day and night." ("The First Noel.") This is the traditional star that's on our Christmas tree.

Unfortunately, the book "Little Star" mixes this real, time-honored star with an invented modern star whose story contradicts the original Bible story - and that troubles us.

Additionally, we didn't like the idea that a "real" star sacrificed his life and was rewarded by returning as, gasp - a fake star? This isn't a fitting parallel to the Resurrection. (Even Pinocchio got to be a real boy.)

I know it's hard to keep Christ in Christmas these days, and we need good children's books to stir their hearts. But, let's stir them with biblical truth and not well-intended half-truths.

"Little Star" is an inspiring picture book that is especially appropriate for Christmas. It tells the charming story of the smallest star in the heavens at the time of the birth of Jesus. The book is also beautifully illustrated and will probably be a favorite of children. Parents, grandparents, and others who are looking for books to read to little ones will also enjoy it.

One of our family Christmas traditions is the addition each season of a new book to our Christmas book trunk. I saw DeStefano on FOX one morning, and being a Frank McCourt reader and former high school English teacher, I thought "Little Star" would be a great book for this year's addition to our collection. I tried to purchase the book locally and couldn't, so I ordered it. Then I read it and knew it was perfect. Its message was meaningful to our adult children, home for the holidays, and I'm sure it will stimulate interesting conversations with our young Grands as they discover the treasures in our Christmas trunk.

If you want a great story to read to your children, grandchildren etc. this is the book. The author wrote this book when he was 15 and no one would publish it because of his age.....he was on Dr Dobson's program when I heard about his story. A short story ....but oh so powerful !
