9780761451273: Shine!

Fathers finally gain proper recognition in this engaging story that will delight small sons and daughters as well as dads everywhere. Jimmy knows it's his father's job, with tools in hand, to light up everything from Christmas trees to basketball courts to lighthouses. Yet, now that it's Jimmy's turn to shine as the Star of Bethlehem in the Christmas pageant, he can only hope his busy father will be there to see him. After all, how can he possibly light up the stage if Dad isn't in the audience? Simple words and warm, expressive illustrations work together to reveal how adults and children light up each other's lives.

About the Author:

Karen Langley is a Marshall Cavendish author.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Cast as the Star of Bethlehem in his school's Christmas pageant, Jimmy practices "shining" daily and asks for his father's promise to attend the performance. Dad pledges to do his best, despite his mounting responsibilities of maintaining lights in their town's clock tower, sports arenas, lighthouse, and Christmas tree. When Jimmy's moment of stardom comes, he's illuminated by multiple flashlights that mimic the beaming face of his father in the audience. The author and illustrator present a cuddly, single-parent household whose interactions warm every scene. White-bordered cartoon settings often contain cheery background details such as Dad's search for his flashlight and the family cat's startled reaction when the telephone rings. Early readers will be comfortable with the pace and vocabulary of this story, which makes use of repetition and alliteration.
