There was a baby who

had no mother,

crying in the starlight.

And as the stars burned,

the baby's tears called to the

watching world.""Stars; bright stars,

can you love me?

Will you be my mother?""

Gillian Shields's poetic expression of maternal love and Elizabeth Harbour's beautiful watercolors will melt hearts. This is an exquisite picture book for mothers and children to cherish.
