Stars, Stockings and Shepherds by Shersta Chabot
We associate ornaments, colored lights and reindeers with Christmas, but have you ever considered what these symbols and others represent spiritually?
Colorful lights can make us smile throughout the holiday season, but they also remind us to look to Jesus for the truth in all things as He is the Light of the World. Wreaths have no beginning and no ends so they represent God’s love which is like a circle with no beginning or end.
Bows represent the ties of love between people such as the children of the Heavenly Father who loves everyone. Reindeers are strong and capable of pulling sleighs so they are a symbol of serving others through strength and kind service. This delightful book explores 24 symbols related to Christmas and how their meanings are associated with the season.
The beautiful illustrations by Corey Egbert captures the reader’s attention. The rich, bold color illustrations feature realistic images that enhances the story.
