Children’s Corner: Briny The Starfish

28 Jan

1309893166701-1228499427-1Briny is a little starfish who leaves the dark ocean in search of the light. He gets stranded on the beach where a star angel appears telling Briny not to be afraid, her father will take care of all his needs. Bright Star appears nightly to teach Briny, about Christian principles like honor and responsibility. When he’s ready he ascends into the sky where he looks down on earth and sees the pain. He wants to do something about it. At that point he’s chosen to guide the wisemen to God’s perfect gift of light, Jesus.


My Impressions:

One of my husband’s clients brought multiple copies of a children’s book she had written for him to give away. I didn’t really know what to expect. What I found was a thoughtful story about God’s love. Briny The Starfish by Linda Milliman and illustrated by Gail King Soles tells the story of a small starfish who hears about light and desires to see it for himself. Swept onto a beach he finds not only the sun which warms him, but a message of the true Light. Linda’s story takes the reader from a beach on the Red Sea to the stable in Bethlehem, all the while gently leading him or her to the truth of God’s nature — His love, provision and gift of salvation. Targeted towards children 8 – 12, with challenging vocabulary and message, this book is perfect for a family read-a-long. I encourage you to check this one out.


Audience: children ages 8-12.
