Book of the Week: The Star Who Fell out of the Sky | children’s book reviews

For this week’s review, I asked my 5 year old little girl what her favorite book was this week. She handed me the The Star Who Fell out of the Sky by Ian Robson.

Just one look at the brilliant illustrations and I could understand why. Bright colors, sweet characters and a heartfelt story combine to make a really fun read. How will these jungle animals work together to get the little star that fell from the sky back home to be with his friends? My daughter smiles every time Harold the Hippo climbs into the rocket to escort the little star back home – his sense of achievement is obvious and she can tell.

This inspirational story about listening, teamwork and cooperation is a great way to share these ever important life lessons with your child.

What is your child’s favorite book right now?

My kids LOVE Wacky Wednesday by Theo LeSieg (I just learned that he’s only referred to as Dr. Seuss when he did his own illustrations). It’s a silly book but also teaches critical observation skills, a prerequisite to reading.

I’m definitely going to look for that book! We haven’t read it yet. Maybe next week’s feature! Thanks for sharing.
