Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leila Toledo
Hannah's class is planning to put on a Christmas play. Hannah was excited until she learned that she will not be Mary. She will be a star. In spite of the teacher telling her that she is not an ordinary star, but the star that lights the way to baby Jesus, Hannah is not happy. In the end she saves the play from disaster and does indeed become a very special star.
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
K-Gr 2A heartfelt school story about a Christmas play in which Hannah is upset about being cast as "just a star." After a series of other disappointments that leads Hannah to conclude that "plays are dumb," she saves the day by coming up with a substitute for a doll her classmate forgot, leaving the production without a baby Jesus. The book is filled with the small anxieties of five or six year olds and the happy bustle of rehearsals and set preparation. Realistic colored-pencil illustrations enliven the story and lend personality to its characters: excited, wide-eyed, costumed children eager to put forth their best effort and the concerned adults who help them. A performance worth repeating.
