When Billy decides he wants to know what stars are made of, he seeks to catch one of his own. Billy doesn’t consider the obstacles that come when one attempts to catch a star… He can only dream about what he’ll learn when he catches his star. Mommy plays into Billy’s ideas and makes a game out of his Star-Fishing experience, a smart and fun strategy to encourage Billy’s imagination… Together they imagine the shooting star visiting exciting places and creatures like Mt. Everest, the North Pole, a hopping kangaroo and more… The outcome is pleasing, sentimental, and unique!
Undoubtedly, Billy isn’t the only child who has contemplated such adventures. No doubt children will make up their own shooting star adventures after reading STAR FISHING!
When Alice decides to move her bedroom outside, she doesn’t consider the lurking creatures or consequences…she can only imagine never having to be inside again! Mom plays into her young daughter’s plan, a smart and savvy strategy, to be sure. Alice must make up her own mind about the pros and cons of outdoor-living…and the outcome is pleasing to all!
Certainly Alice isn’t the only kid who has contemplated such freedom…or made a similar mistake…but I don’t know of another picture book featuring the same theme. Sharing in her adventure makes this book unique. No doubt many more kids will try it out for themselves whenILOVE OUTSIDE hits their bookshelves!
