Illustrator Vashti Harrison's beautiful images captivate the imaginations of young readers who can look at their own night skies and wonder what might be out there. Hello, Star brings empathy and connection to the pages of this lovely read-aloud story, and emphasizes how hard work can be fulfilling. The information about stars is perfectly appropriate for this age, helping make space accessible and fascinating.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
