Here is a heartwarming retelling of the traditional Nativity story. It remains faithful to the gospel accounts but allows us to view them through the eyes of a child. In a deft and utterly convincing conclusion, the reader is drawn into Leah’s belief that the tiny baby in her arms is in fact holding her with unshakeable love.
The wonderful illustrations to Leah's Star are by Karin Littlewood. I particularly wanted Karin to illustrate this story as she captures the expressions on people's faces so well.
I also love the colours in Karin's paintings
