The Star That Lost its Twinkle by Janice Blanchett

Looking for a new and endearing story about the wise men’s journey to find Jesus? Then The Star That Lost its Twinkle by Janice Blanchett is the perfect book for you and your children.

Lucas is a bright star that outshines his classmates. But his classmates don’t enjoy his bragging, and keeping up his image makes Lucas forget the importance of caring for himself. Soon, he loses his shine, and his classmates treat him poorly. It seems like nothing will help, until some encouraging advice leads him to pray to God asking for His help in making Lucas the star he created him to be.

What a touching story! The Star That Lost its Twinkle reminds us that we must take care of our temple (body) and that God has a special plan for all of us. Alongside Jack Foster’s amazing and beautiful artwork, this story is perfect for this time of year, but also as a constant reminder to reach out and ask for God’s help every day. Such a beautiful story!

PapΓ‘’s Magical Water-Jug Clock by Jesus Trejo

Jesus Trejo enters the world of publishing with this adorable and funny children’s picture book.

PapÑ’s Magical Water-Jug Clock finds young JesΓΊs excited to spend his Saturday helping PapΓ‘ with the family’s landscaping business. PapΓ‘ even puts him in charge of the magical water-jug clock. When all the water is gone, PapΓ‘ explains, then their work will be done. JesΓΊs is eager to do his job right, but he can’t help sharing the water with all the thirsty animals. Before JesΓΊs knows it, the water jug is empty but their workday is not done. Will JesΓΊs be in trouble?

This charming story is filled with an important life lesson, but JesΓΊs’s zany actions, the strange animals he discovers as they work, and the colorful illustrations by Eliza Kinkz that celebrate this hard-working family’s daily routine while creating a sense of lighthearted silliness along the way, creates a wonderful story that will delight readers everywhere. There is so much to love about PapÑ’s Magical Water-Jug Clock. I encourage you discover it for yourself. It will be worth it!
