Add to wish list


It's Christmas Eve and Cody's family has all gathered for their traditional Christmas party - all except Grandpa, who is sitting quietly in his room, looking out the window at the cloudy sky. Grandpa tells Cody about the time in Vietnam and the Christmas Eve when a bright star appeared through the clouds, giving the soldiers hope. All of the men promised to look for the star every year and remember each other and those who didn't come home.

Cody makes a new tradition: now the whole family will join Grandpa in looking for the star. This touching family story, accompained by rich illustrations, tells the importance of traditions and honoring those who served their country.
