A Christmas Story of Light
by Ora Smith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
"God sent Jesus to guide us. He wants you to show His light by being kind and loving others. Then you'll have your own light."
At the end of this book author Ora Smith tells readers that she wanted to share with her grandchildren the story of God and his son Jesus and this is exactly what she has done in A Christmas Story of Light. The beautiful star on the cover reminds us of the star that was present on the night of Jesus's birth and this 34 page book relates the story of Jesus being born and how his birth changed mankind forever. Along with the Christmas story the author stresses that Jesus came to light our way and that each one of use can be a light.
This book has a beautiful cover and the bright, colorful illustrations inside are appealing to children. Older children should find the text easy to read and pre-school children will enjoy listening to it as they look at the pictures.
I am looking forward to sharing this with my 4 1/2 year old granddaughter. This is a wonderful way to share the story of Jesus's birth and to impress upon children the true meaning of Christmas; it also encourages them to follow God's Word and to share love and hope with others. I recommend A Christmas Story of Light for those who are looking for faith-based reading material for children.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book.
