Star in the Jar
Big Sister explains to readers that her little brother is something of a treasure hunter. He likes all kinds of treasures, and he finds them in all kinds of places. But one day, he is lucky enough to find something so special that they think it must belong to someone else. They ask people at school if it belongs to them, but no one claims it. They ask the sheriff, they ask the fairies, they ask the wizards, but it seems it belongs to the little brother. He takes it everywhere. But the treasure, a little star, is sad. The children see a sign in the sky that a little star has been lost. Try as they might, they can’t seem to find a way to send the sad little star back to its home in the sky, or can they?
Sam Hay and Sarah Massini have created a charming picture book with a sweet story that will help settle little ones down for the night. It is unusually told by the sister in first person. The language is gentle, and the illustrations are perfectly enchanting. This will surely become a favorite bedtime story for most who read it.
