3.Â Little Star by best-selling Catholic author Anthony DeStefano
Little Star is a beautifully illustrated retelling of the Nativity story.Â Certain to become a Christmas classic, this delightful tale connects the star atop our Christmas trees to the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus, in the hearts and minds of young children.
