Editorial Reviews

Review


“Every reader needs this transformation and empowering life story. It will help children and adults celebrate life at all its stages and cherish the memories of those we love always. From the endpapers to the conclusion, Fox and Blackwood craft a powerful story of life, love, and belonging.” —School Library Journal, starred review

"A book that shows how love can draw people closer as individuals and as a community." —
Publishers Weekly


"Fox’s words whisper straight to one’s heart while Blackwood’s characteristically warm, smudgy illustrations exude warmth. A true sense of community is found within; neighbors gather, animals flock together. Blackwood and Fox embrace growth and love." —
Kirkus

 


From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 3—In yet another heartfelt story, Fox pens a bold and beautiful analogy about a star falling to Earth and becoming a baby. At the very beginning of the story, she leads with a scientific truth about stars often falling to the ground and continues with an imaginative cycle of a growing child, young lady, and an older woman moving through the human stages of life and growing in a loving community. The captivating pictures portray the nurturing relationships developed with family, friends, and animals. Every reader needs this transformation and empowering life story. From the time the star turns into a baby until it is an adult, it experiences many valuable connections with people; as the person grows, the reader sees the star blanket throughout to a comforting and magnificent ending. VERDICT This story will help children and adults celebrate life at all its stages and cherish the memories of those we love always. From the endpapers to the conclusion, Fox and Blackwood craft a powerful story of life, love, and belonging.—Tanya Haynes, Meyer Elem./Lamar CISD, Stafford, Texas --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
