Helping Little Star

Author(s): Blaze Kwaymullina and Sally Morgan

Indigenous | Black Lives Matter to Kids

This is a sweet, strikingly illustrated story of a lost star finding his way home - with a little help from his friends. "Do not go near the edge of Night Sky," warns Moon, "or you will fall off." Does Little Star listen? Of course not! He falls down, down, down, SPLASH - right into a creek. When he asks Python to help him get home, Python flicks him out of the water, THUD - right into a cave. How will he get out? Each of the animals Little Star meets moves him a bit further along his way...until they all help him find his way back home. This is a heartwarming and visually stunning read-aloud for bedtime or any time. It is full of the magic of the night sky and the power of kindness. There are exquisitely stylized decorative art filling every spread. It features adorable animals that young readers will be drawn to - even the snake!
