Summary
One evening long ago, three women in three very different corners of the world are struck by the light of a bright new rising star, and each feels compelled to follow it. The three women meet on a path of starlight, and together they walk through the hills to a small thatched stable, where a baby lies in a makeshift crib, surrounded by expensive gifts. The women have nothing to give except gifts from the heart. Mary Hoffman's beautiful story, enhanced by Lynne Russell's glowing artwork, gently reminds all readers of the contributions women have made to Christianity.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "A touch of girl power imbues Hoffman's (Amazing Grace) magical tale of three women from vastly different lands and cultures who find themselves united by the glorious event of Jesus' birth. Each compelled to follow the intense light of a special star, the three wise women reach Bethlehem not bearing extravagant material gifts like those of their male counterparts, but gifts from the heart: freshly baked bread, a story, a kissÄgifts that will inspire Jesus throughout his life. The forceful and rich oil pastels provide a reverent yet mystical setting. Ages 4-8. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
