If you go outside on a clear night, you can’t help yourself. Your head tilts back, your
eyes rise up, and you find yourself gazing at the stars . . . WOW! From the beginning of time, people have admired the night sky’s beauty.
The night sky is our oldest picture book, and Wishing on a Star retells some of these stories from around the world in simple language that kids can understand.
Wishing on a Star also includes lots of fun activities that celebrate the stars. Learn how to make a twinkling thaumatrope, fly a starry kite, and act in your own constellation play.
