Book Review: "A Star for Jesus"



Book Description:
Beautiful illustrations and playful rhyming text bring the story of Jesus’ birth alive for young children in A Star for JesusThis board book, die-cut to enhance the shape of the star on the front cover, is a perfect gift to help little ones understand that "God made the stars and put them up high to shine down on earth from up in the sky." But long ago God made a special star. He put it in the sky to send a message: "Jesus our Savior has come …"

About the Author and Illustrator:

Crystal Bowman 
Crystal Bowman loves writing books for kids. Her books come in all shapes and sizes and many of them have become best sellers. Whether her stories are written in playful rhythm and rhyme, or short sentences for beginning readers, she tries to make them so enjoyable that kids will want to read them over and over again. "But the most important part," she says, "is to teach children that God loves them and cares about them very much."

Claudine Gevry 
You can find Claudine diving the oceans with Technicolor fish, camel riding in the Sahara, trekking in a jungle populated with wild monkeys, or exploring the African savanna in search of huge elephants. Although adventurous, she sometimes gets scared when coming upon a giant spider or other scary beasts. At that time she heads back to the comfort of her studio, where she draws all the wonderful things she saw and dreams of her next visit to faraway lands.

My Review:
A big thank you to Zondervan for sending me this book for free in exchange for an honest review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.   

This book is filled with adorable rhyming and shares the true meaning of Christmas.   I like the focus of the STAR and the many meanings that were shared from God making the stars to Jesus' arrival and the reminder to look at the stars and remember Jesus and his promises.   

A Star for Jesus truly is a great Christmas story that your kids will be asking to hear again and again.  Enjoy your Christmas season and make sure to pick up this book to share the true meaning of Christmas with your family!   Zondervan sells this book for $6.99.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
