Interesting read ... Recommended ... 4 stars

Little Star hopes to win the big star contest set for December 25. When he discovers all the stars are as hopeful Little Star cries causing his points to rust. Little Star busies himself polishing, polishing, polishing and forgets all about checking to see what day it is. At last the heavens were astir, angels and prophets spent much time making notes and talking in hushed tones. Little Star has a special surprise waiting for him when he realizes what day it is.

In "Little Star's Big Day, a children's Christmas Story" Writer Wohlford offers a fanciful tale of a small star living way out in the far reaches of the universe. Little Star's determination to be the best he can be despite long odds against winning is a good lesson for children of all ages. Little Star faces up to the pitfalls facing him, carries on and ultimately achieves his goal.

The tale of Little Star is one with which children can identify. Illustrator Schaefer's stars filling the pages of "Little Star's Big Day, a children's Christmas Story" are sure to be child pleasing. All illustrations found in "Little Star's Big Day, a children's Christmas Story" are ones children will enjoy.

"Little Star's Big Day, a children's Christmas Story" is a nicely presented work with shiny, heavy pages which are needed if the book is to be considered for classroom or other 'much child' use. I believe this is the first Bookman Publication book I have received for review and am pleased to find it is a good sturdy product.

Vocabulary used in "Little Star's Big Day, a children's Christmas Story" leads the book to being a 'read to' type work for younger children and all except the strongest readers in the 6-8 set.
