A little girl and her soldier father find a way to be close even when he's away at war

Amanda is scared of the dark. But her dad can fix that. He shows Amanda all the wonderful things that live in the dark, like fireflies, crickets, and stars. And when her father has to go away, he even puts glowing paper stars on Amanda's bedroom ceiling, so she can look at their special star while he's away and know he's on the other side of the world looking at it too, and thinking of her.

Stars Above Us is an affecting, beautifully illustrated narrative tailor-made for children who?ve ever lived without a parent.
