As the sun goes down on Christmas Eve, a little star rises up and watches over the celebrations below.

One family hangs a wreath on their door, another plays on the beach, another gives a present to someone who needs it more. The little star shines brighter as they share in the joy and magic of this special night.

A heartwarming, contemporary lullaby for little ones to listen to as they snuggle up at bedtime, The Brightest Christmas Star gently acknowledges that Christmas means different things to different people, but at the heart of it all is love. A perfect gift for baby’s first Christmas, or for families seeking a book that reflects the Australian Christmas experience in an inclusive way that doesn’t focus on Santa Claus or traditional family structures.

Laura Motherway has spent 17 years delivering positively distracting programs for children and young people in hospital at the Starlight Children’s Foundation and has worked as a singer, improviser, actor and director. She is currently the Strategic Creative Learning Manager for the cultural organisation FORM Building a State of Creativity, where she oversees creative learning programs including the Scribblers Literature Festival in Perth. The Brightest Christmas Star is her first book.
