Description

A star is how you know it’s almost night.

As soon as you see one, there’s another, and another.

And the dark that comes doesn’t feel so dark.

What if you could have a star?

From acclaimed author Mary Lyn Ray and two-time Caldecott Honor winner Marla Frazee comes this tender, evocative—and profound—exploration of stars both near and far.
