Little Star

Sunday, August 9, 2015 Review by SoTB

LittleStarBy:  Deborah J. Solberg

Little Star wants to shine his light brighter than all the stars in the sky, but he’s just a baby star, and doesn’t know how.

Father Sun and Mother Moon show Little Star the pretty planet Earth, where people look up to find the light of happiness.

Little Star looks down. Debbie is crying in her sandbox. Her sand castles are kicked apart, and she is sad.

Little Star tries his best to shine, but Debbie can’t see him. He asks North Star, Orion and the Milky Way how they shine, but he must find his own way.

Soon, Little Star imagines he is dancing. Light bursts from all his points.
Debbie notices the twinkle, and soon she is dancing.
Together, the stars help Debbie change, and find her light of happiness.
‘Little Star’ is a transformational and magical story of ‘happily ever after’.

This fully illustrated picture book is perfect for children ages 4-8.
