S is for Star: A Christmas Alphabet
Cynthia Furlong Reynolds
Illustrated by Pam Carroll
Ages 3 and up
Sleeping Bear Press, 2001,
In this unique alphabet book the author highlights certain aspects of the Christmas season. For every letter in the alphabet there is a piece of poetry, a picture, and a side bar full of additional information. In addition to the more traditional Christmas themes and stories - "A is for Angels" and "B is for baby Jesus" - readers will find other less well known stories and pieces of Christmas history and lore. For example we learn where the word "Christmas" comes from, what the word "Noel" means, and why we decorate our homes with trees for the Christmas season.
Packed with fascinating information and simple seasonal rhymes this is a book which will entertain readers of all ages.
