Picture Books We Love

Top of the Shelf: Stars

Stars by Mary Lyn Ray, pictures by Marla Frazee (Beach Lane Books, 2011) This tall, blue-filled book offers brilliant views of sky marveled at by an array of children depicted with Marla Frazee's usual attention to getting the right detail to show a variety of charmers. Delicately depicted themes include wishes, a sense of safety, changing moods, the star shapes we can find in flowers and snowflakes, and how what we can't see remains. Text and pictures gently push us to look and wonder, perfect for bedtimes, when children can close their eyes and imagine great worlds beyond the roof. *           *          *          *         *          *          *          *           * Want more recommendations from The Carle Bookshop?
