Staff Reviews


What a sweet, gentle book this is! Sister tells how her younger brother finds objects, and in his quest, he finds a shining fallen star. After they realize it may be someone else's, Massini's whimsical illustrations point to some usual suspects - but alas! no one claims the star. Ah, but greater things are in store for the pair, and with Hay's imaginative telling, a happy ending is clearly seen. Gorgeous, vibrant artwork make this a standout for storytime. Be ready for multiple tellings! - Maureen

Named a "Parents Best Children's Books 2018"

What would you do with a fallen star?

When a little boy stumbles across a lost star, he decides to take care of it, putting it in a jar and carrying it with him everywhere. But when the sky calls out for its missing star, can the little boy and his sister figure out a way to return the star to its friends in the sky...even if it means saying goodbye forever?

This warm-hearted and enchanting bedtime story celebrates the rewards of true friendship.

Praise for Star in the Jar:

A hilarious romance told from two perspectives. One a girl who is determined to show her worth and smarts. The other a boy who believes in true love and meeting that perfect someone. What happens when the two meet? Well, coffee in the face and so much more. Great teen romance. - Jessica
