Stars cleverly takes one theme and explores it through the eyes of a diverse group of children. These pint-sized philosophers discover the wonder and mystery of the everyday, finding the extraordinary in their ordinary surroundings. Caldecott Honor recipient Marla Frazee’s gentle graphite-and-gouache illustrations are well-suited to the quiet text, and will capture the heart and imagination of young readers. A perfect read for bedtime.

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.
