About the Book: In a true tale of a young girl in Iran and her grandmother, this beautiful ode to family celebrates small moments of love that become lifelong memories.
In this big universe full of many moons, I have traveled and seen many wonders, but I have never loved anything or anyone the way I love my grandma.
While Mina is growing up in Iran, the center of her world is her grandmother. Whether visiting friends next door, going to the mosque for midnight prayers during Ramadan, or taking an imaginary trip around the planets, Mina and her grandma are never far apart. At once deeply personal and utterly universal, Mina Javaherbin's words make up a love letter of the rarest sort: the kind that shares a bit of its warmth with every reader. Soft, colorful, and full of intricate patterns, Lindsey Yankey's illustrations feel like a personal invitation into the coziest home, and the adoration between Mina and her grandma is evident on every page.
About the Author: Mina Javaherbin has written several award-winning picture books, including Soccer Star, illustrated by Renato Alarcão, and Goal!, illustrated by A. G. Ford. She lives in Southern California.

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
