Picture Book Puzzler: Starry-Eyed

January 2nd, 2012 by Eliza Eliza

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a warm and wonderful holiday season and that your New Year celebrations were full of shimmery fun! When I think about New Year’s Eve, I love to picture glitter, fireworks and stars. So for this week’s Picture Book Puzzler, I’m bringing you lots of  shiny, star-filled images from favorite children’s books. How many can you name?

Don’t you love how every illustrator depicts stars so differently? It’s just so dreamy… It’s no wonder that so many bedtime books feature beautiful starry skies. Do you have a favorite picture book about stars?
