Star! Stable! Saviour! : the Christmas story in S by Cameron Semmens is a fun look at the Christmas story with lots of alliteration of the letter S. Cameron Semmens has done a great job of telling the Christmas story in a fresh and interesting way. Cameron’s book focuses on the shepherds and the wise men visiting the stable (Strictly speaking the wise men didn’t come to the stable nevertheless they are an important part of the events surrounding Jesus’ birth).
Through the story Cameron conveys the unexpectedness and wonder of a Saviour being born in a stable. The book lends itself to being read over and over as children will enjoy the sound of the story as well as the message.
Rod Allen has done a great job of creating illustrations to fit the message and style of the book.
