The Star of Christmas

angled_bookFans of Maria Wilkes’s Caroline books will be interested to know Maria has a new picture book out, a sweet holiday story called The Star of Christmas. Published under Maria’s maiden name (Maria T. DiVencenzo) and illustrated by Elaine S. Verstraete, this gentle and golden-hued tale is going to make a lovely addition to our Advent book basket. I know Beanie especially is going to be enchanted by the story—a Christmas Eve conversation between all the ornaments on the tree. Which one of them is the real star of Christmas?

Read the book online at the Winterlake Press website.

    I SO have to get this book! I love personal recomendations for Christmas things. 🙂

    I want to give you one of mine. My friend just made a Christmas CD called All About the Baby, and it is awesome! Here is my favorite one from the CD.

    You probably already have it, but we love the book Great Joy by Kate DiCamillo. Perfect for the season.
