Song of the Stars

A Christmas Story

by Sally Lloyd-Jones, illustrated by Allison Jay

Song of the Stars tells the story of that very first Christmas… That night, the whole universe is breathless with anticipation… a rumor drifts over the open fields, a song floats over the hills, the faces of little flowers lift to the skies… it’s time! it’s time!

The skies shouted it to the seas that thundered it to the waves that roared it to the great white whales that sang it to the starfish in the deep. And tiny sandpipers danced it on shining sands… “It’s time! It’s time!” On one quiet night, creation whispered a secret. Grass and bees, robins and trees all spread the word.

Sheep tell their young while angels sing the song to the shepherds. Together they join in nature’s great chorus of praise to the Newborn King and The Song of the Stars.

The long-awaited child has arrived!

Free Song of the Stars Children’s Play Script

The Psalms tell us that the created order now declares the glory of God (Psalm 19 & 65). How fitting, then, to imagine the animals and stars sensing and rejoicing in the coming of Christ the first time. Song of the Stars is a lovely book!” – Dr Timothy Keller

“(In Song of the Stars) Sally Lloyd-Jones captures in this simple story the wonder of Christ’s birth in a way that children can understand… Brightly painted animal illustrations fill the pages of this lovely picture book.” World Magazine

Song of the Stars: A subtle, yet satisfying story about the impending arrival of the newborn King… Lloyd Jones’s lyrical language… and repetitive refrains make the text suitable for reading aloud… A charming addition to most collections.” School Library Journal

Song of the Stars… blends text and illustration beautifully and the personified world creates a veritable chorus rife with alliteration… Children will be charmed by the image of a dozen snouts of various animals circling Jesus; adults will notice in that circle the hands of Mary offering the gift to the world. Jay’s vivid paintings have a cracked appearance that appropriately adds an old-time feel to this fresh take on the Christmas story.” BookList
