Item Description...
The Christmas story and the origin of many holiday traditions are thoroughly detailed in the text of S is for Star: A Christmas Alphabet. The first Christmas cards were printed and sold in the United States by a German immigrant in 1874. Long ago, eating pie was believed to bring good luck, and during the holidays they were baked in an oblong shape to look like a manger.

The message of Christmas is a message to all the world and is beautifully conveyed and illustrated in S is for Star. Our tradition of gift-giving is based on the Wise Men's visit to Baby Jesus. Nearly every country has its own gift-giving traditions. In Great Britain, children eagerly await Father Christmas. In France, he is called Pere Nol. In Italy, Befana brings presents, and German and Austrian children wait for a visit from the Christkindl.

Celebrate these and many other traditions of the holiday season with S is for Star: A Christmas Alphabet.

I love these Alphabet books  Feb 14, 2008
I recently stumbled upon these books. I bought this one as well as a few of the states ones (H is for Hoosier, C is for Cornhusker, B is for Buckeye). I think these books are really cute. I am a huge book person when it comes to children's books anyway. I thought this S is for Star book would be a neat tradition to start with our children to read each Christmas season.
nice for an older child  Oct 11, 2007
This book is very informative and would be wonderful to read one letter each day leading up to christmas with a school age child. I bought this book for my 7 month old nephew and while it is nicely illustrated, I don't think it will hold his attention very well as it is much better suited to an older child. I would not suggest this book for children under 5, simply because of the reading level.
Great teaching tool  Jan 8, 2006
As an elementary teacher, I loved the layout, illustrations and information in this book. It reaches across age and learning ranges by having two levels of information - a shorter rhyming stanza and then extremely detailed information in the margins. The illustrations were beautiful and engaging even for children below the recommended age range - a book that will truly grow with your children! Also, it addresses Christmas traditions from cultures around the world and represents an evangelical Christian viewpoint of Jesus Christ.
Wonderful Find!  Dec 15, 2004
I picked this up in person at the bookstore, and I bought 4 copies. We are using them for gift exchanges as well as a copy for ourselves. I homeschool two young children and decided to do two letters a day from this book and came up with a coordinating activity for each letter. There is a plethora of Christmas information within these pages. You can use it just for the rhyming portion, or go more in depth and study the margins which have everything from Bible verses to explaining the origins of certain traditions, and all sorts of interesting tidbits. The illustrations are beautiful as well. We are really enjoying it!
Wonderful Book  Nov 25, 2004
This book solidifies why I love Sleeping Bear Press.

The illustrations are wonderful, but the extra facts about the traditions of Christmas are just great. I learned so much just by reading this book, such as "X is for Christ." I never realized why we abbreviated Christmas, at times, for Xmas, but now I know because of this book. The book talks a lot about Christian traditions, but tells of other traditions all over the world, such as what other countries eat for their "feast."

This book is great for anyone who wants to learn more about Christmas traditions!
