STARS, STOCKINGS, & SHEPHERDS by Shersta Chabot is an meaningful Christmas traditions/Holiday symbols. What a delightful as well as educational book. The illustrations are by Corey Egbert and they are fantastic.

I had forgot a lot of the symbols of the Christmas season meanings, how very sad for me. Some I knew, such as the Candy Cane, The Wise Men, Jesus, and many more. The author has done an exceptional job of the definitions, explanations, and the meaning of Christmas. I loved this book. Easy to read, easy to follow. Young readers may need a bit of help reading, but I feel they will delight with this book. The pictures are vivid, and exciting.

A keeper for any library and true treasure for your holiday reading. Did you know…the meaning of the Christmas Lights? or the meaning of the Christmas Tree? Wreaths? or Carols? Well these and so many more symbols are explained. I would highly recommend this title to anyone who enjoys the Christmas season, and all the dressing pertaining to the Christmas season. Every parent, grandparent, church teacher really should get this title. Well done!!
