You are a Star!
By Michael Parker, illustrated by Judith Rossell
Walker, 32 pp., $16.99
An introduction to astronomy for very young readers. Before she goes to sleep, a young girl takes a trip from her bedroom window into the sky, past the moon, and through the universe: It may be dark out here, / but the sky is not all empty and black. / Look. More stars than you can count / on all your fingers and all your toes. Rossell’s winsome illustrations (made with celestial maps, rubber stamps, and acrylic paints) hit the mark in this gentle bedtime story. Ages 4-8.
