Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leah Hanson
The holiday season has arrived and Max's class is going to put on a play. Even though he is the smallest child in the class, he still dreams of being the star of the show. When his wish comes true quite literally (his role is the star of Bethlehem), Max can't hide his disappointment. While everyone else practices songs, makes costumes, and learns their lines, Max hovers on the sidelines. His attempts to "help" the others with their roles further highlights how very small his own part is. Caring adults attempt to offer comfort, but Max refuses to be consoled. Only when his moment in the spotlight finally arrives does Max realize just how important his part really is. Amidst cheers and smiles, Max discovers the true meaning of the Christmas story. Re??ek's bright palette and gentle illustrations capture the innocence of childhood, and Max's expressive face vividly portrays his emotional journey from frustration to joy. Although this variation on the familiar "no small parts, only small actors" theme uses a Biblical story as its foundation, the overarching message is more about being true to oneself.
