"Perkins’ touching tale makes the story of Christmas new while weaving
in the positive message of trusting the constancy of Maker in the face
of change. Le’s captivating jewel-toned illustrations and Perkins’
measured unspooling of story will charm readers and make them excited to
read on . . . A unique retelling of the Nativity that will surprise and delight." ~ Kirkus Reviews
Little Star likes her usual spot in the night sky over Bethlehem. Every
night, she twinkles above the hills and hopes that nothing will change.
But one night, Maker gathers the galaxy! Holy Night is coming, and Maker
wants the planets, Moon, and the stars to all take part.
As Maker doles out jobs, Little Star holds back, each new role sounding too hard or too scary. But when Maker eventually calls on her to shine, Little Star discovers she is ready and able to welcome the Child and joins the other stars and planets in celebration.
