Margo's Musings: ✯ ✩✶ ★✦☆✭ ★ ✬ ✦✩ ★✶

Stars are everywhere.
Not just in the sky.

I'm over the moon happy to share Margo's latest book obsession with you. She heard it last week for the first time and has wanted it read to her no less than three times a day since. Luckily, I love it too! Stars is written by Mary Lyn Ray and illustrated by Marla Frazee. It's an enchanting story for people of all ages. The illustrations are imaginative and fanciful, which makes them flow perfectly with the writing. Of course, since we first read the story Margo has had a star in her pocket, and so have I. Plus, we've been looking for stars everywhere, and I'm amazed at all the places we've discovered them!


Have you ever wondered what a star is? If so, this book will take you on a wild adventure and help your imagination soar. Stars may come out when it is almost night, but we can find them just about anywhere. We know stars make the night seem less scary, so isn’t it a good idea to carry a one with us? Who knows when we'll need a star for ourselves or starlight to give to another. Margo loves stargazing with me, and now she points out objects all the time that she's deemed a “star”. Like Margo, you'll fall in love with this book. I like the message within the words of the story; stars are everywhere! I would recommend this book to kids, book lovers, and sky gazers of all ages.

Happy reading! ~ F

  7. This sounds charming, and the illustration are lovely. I've always loved looking at the stars, and I'm always out there when it's time for a meteor shower no matter how cold or how early/late the optimal viewing window is.
