The Star movie teaches Christmas story with farm twist
The Star movie tells the story of the birth of Jesus Christ. Ranch kids will love it as the movie tells the story from the perspective of the donkeys, sheep, horses and cattle.
Born in a manger, no crib for a bed, the little Lord Jesus lays down his sweet head…
Last week, I took my three-year old Scarlett to the movie theater where a new kids’ movie was playing. We left the guys at home to work on our consignment sale bulls, and Scarlett and I enjoyed a fun mommy/daughter date complete with comfy seats, a big screen and of course, movie treats!
While I normally wouldn’t drag my squirmy toddler to a public place like a movie theater, she’s really gotten into everything Christmas this year. She’s loved decorating the tree, making goodies in the kitchen, wrapping presents and learning about the true meaning of Christmas. She plays with her children’s version of the nativity scene every night before bed, and it just melts your heart listening to her talk about baby Jesus being born in a manger.

So of course, when I saw a preview for the movie, “The Star,” I knew it would be something Scarlett would really enjoy. If you haven’t seen it yet, The Star is about Christmas and the story of the night Jesus was born. Told from the perspective of a brave donkey named Bo and his sidekick, a sweet sheep named Ruth, the movie tells the story of the animals that follow the star to Bethlehem and make sure Jesus is born safely and away from the evil grasps of King Herod and his henchmen.
