A Star for Me - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received product for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

A Star for Me is a count-your-blessings story that will soon become a beloved bedtime tradition during the holidays. At the beginning of the Christmas season, your children will look forward to reading the book and hanging the ornament on a bottom branch of the Christmas tree. Then your family can enjoy the entire story at once or read a few pages at a time as an Advent countdown.

Each night, children can read a bit more about Oliver, an adorable little camel who is part of the caravan traveling toward Bethlehem. As Oliver learns about God’s blessings on each new page, young readers are prompted to talk about their own blessings and then move the star ornament a bit higher on the tree each night. On Christmas Day, children can move the star all the way to the top of the tree and remember the greatest blessing of all—Jesus!

Told in rhythmic form, A Star for Me is a wonderfully written book that tells of a camel named Oliver who is on a journey toward Bethlehem. During the trek, Oliver encounters several of God's blessings.

A Star for Me, a hardback book with a gold star ornament, is 20 pages long and can be read all at once or as part of a countdown towards Christmas. We preferred to absorb the entire story at once and will hang the ornament on our tree in one spot when it's put up for the holiday season. This book is an interesting and engaging way for children to train in counting their blessings.

Win It!

One person will win a book copy of A Star for Me.

We'd probably read it as a countdown since my grandson's attention span is still pretty short.
