“Wynken and Blynken are eyes,
and Nod is a little head,
and the wodden shoe that sailed the skies,
is a wee one's trundle-bed...“

A big Mooncake for Little Star is a great classroom Caldecott. This informational book about the phases of the moon is complimented with beautiful pictures.

From the author of The Rainbow Fish, comes this story of the first Christmas. With sparkly #stars on every page, this book has been well-loved at our house for years.

#HollyJollyReading Day 6: We are, after all, made of #Star stuff as this picturebook evocatively demonstrates. When humans finally entered the pages, it was stardust giving birth to stardust: showing human beings‘ intimate connection and kinship with ferns, sharks, daisies, galloping horses – and always, always, the stars. My review of this exquisitely illustrated book: https://wp.me/pDlzr-k8J

This book was great. This is a biography that was published in 2014. This book is aimed more towards younger crowds due to the many illustrations and the explanations throughout the book, but no one is too young or two old to be intrigued/drawn in by this book.
The book is about a little boy who's name is Carl. He loves the sky and concepts of space, stars, and comparing how big the sun is to our small planets. He also shows interest in planets.

em_lemo My favorite line throughout this book has to be the beginning. In the beginning, one is greeted with the sun and the planets that are around and closest to it, and then continues to narrow the places to Brooklyn, NY; which is were Carl lives.
“Carl was curious about everything.“
This follows the introduction, but sets up the readers for a hint about what he may be curious about.
