How to Catch a Star Competition

How to Catch a Star

My children were very excited upon receiving this lovely story through the post.  They opened the box with great delight, as you can see here.  Opening the story straight away, they snuggled up on the sofa to listen.  We all get very excited when looking at a new book, especially as this one was so magical.

“Once there was a boy and the boy loved stars very much.  Every night he watched the stars from his window and wished he had one of his very own…”

Excited children!

This story is  perfect for children aged 2-7 years, it is a warm, poignant and humorous celebration of joyful ingenuity and the belief that anything is possible.  My children both loved it and read it several times.  My son even read it to his sister a couple of times!  The illustrations were beautiful and enabled the children to discuss what they could see.

A part of the wonderful presentation box that we received, there was a poster in there, two copies of the story (one for review and one as a competition prize), a packet of glow in the dark stars, a memory stick with activities on it as well as a set of printed resources from this.  We are currently spending some time playing with these so look out for future posts where I will describe the fun we’ve been having with them!
