S is for Star
Upon Christmas tree branches, candles glow while angels and animals, birds and balls cover Christmas trees in homes and halls
keeping watch on that starry night and S stands for sheep
asleep in the starry light.
From angels with their tidings of great joy, to Queen Victoria, the source of so many English holiday traditions, each letter of the alphabet is explored with both engaging poems and detailed text. S is for Star will add new meaning to family traditions, and perhaps even inspire new ones!
Author: Cynthia Furlong Reynolds, Journalist and author, had a huge task ahead of her when asked by Sleeping Bear Press to fit as many Christmas legends, scriptures, traditions and rituals into her latest children’s title, S is for Star: A Christmas Alphabet. But Cynthia was up to the challenge as an inquiring journalist and life-long history buff.
Illustrator: Pam Carroll (A is for America) once again brings her delicate and beautiful touch to the paintings inspired by Cynthia’s text. Each illustration shines with a light of its own and will have family members picking out favorites to pour over again and again.
