Stella wasn't like all the other stars in the skies above Bethlehem. She was a four-pointed star in a five-pointed world, and the other stars teased her because of it. Then one day, the stars heard an important event was about to happen-and God would choose one star to play a crucial role.
Could that star be Stella? Not if the other stars get their way, and they will do anything to stop her!
Stella's story shows us that often the ones considered different in the world are the ones who shine the brightest through their faith, hope, and love.
Stella the Rejected Star was written by Marc McCormack when he was eleven. Almost forty years later, Stella's story has turned out to be his son Brady's story. Brady, who is blind and nonverbal with autism, navigates his way through the world as both a star who has sometimes been rejected, and one of the brightest-shining ones.
Set against the first Nativity, Stella the Rejected Star is more than a Christmas story and is for everyone, especially those young readers with four points in a five-pointed world.
Stella's story is the perfect one to teach children the importance of empathy and acceptance. If your child loves Christmas and stars, even mischievous ones, they will love Stella the Rejected Star!
