One little star is upset that she isn’t lit at night by the Star lighters like all the other stars. She complains to the Star lighters, and when that doesn’t work, she complains to God. God is understanding and slowly tells the Little Star the plan for the first Christmas night in Bethlehem.

The story takes place on the evening of the first Christmas.
