Review of SONG OF THE STARS by Sally Lloyd-Jones

Rating: 5 out of 5

I have three young children and they’re getting to the ages where they get really excited about Christmas. My wife and I love the opportunity to give gifts to our children, but we also want to be very intentional about communicating what Christmas is really about. We’ve grown to love the children’s works of Sally Lloyd-Jones, and we were excited to read her Christmas book SONG OF THE STARS to our children in hopes of having it be a yearly tradition for our children.

The book is beautfilly written in the way that Lloyd-Jones knows how to pick words that communicate the incredible impact of what happened the first Christmas. The book is equally beautifully illustrated by Allison Jay. The book is a creation-oriented celebration of God coming into the world as a baby, and the illustrations show creation awaiting God’s arrival.

My kids loved the book, and we’re excited to use it to communicate the expectation we should feel about Christmas because Christ came.
