My Review

Stars, Stockings and Shepherds was the cutest book! I completely fell in love with the illustrations from page one and just continued to adore them as I read about the different symbols of Christmas. The illustrations were definitely my favorite part of this book. Each symbol also included a paragraph talking about in which way it symbolized Christmas, as well as its inspirational meaning. I would have liked to have seen some words highlighted or in bold or a quick fact or something so that the meaning could be summed up in just a word or two and easily remembered that way. Otherwise, this was a fun and sweet book to read through and one I'll be reading again with my kids around Christmastime.
