Book by Ray Mary Lyn Frazee Marla

Críticas:

"Ray ("Christmas Farm") and Frazee ("The Boss Baby"), two big talents beating as one, assemble a cast of junior philosophers to help them muse on why stars--as celestial bodies, as shapes, as symbols, as talismans--hold so much meaning and mystery for us...while the prevailing tone is contemplative, it's more quirky than languid, capturing the delicious freedom of Ray's mind at play. Her prose wanders in the best sense of the word, and Frazee is happy to connect the dots and explore the detours, showing readers how stars can turn sticks into wands, cheer us up, or remind us, gently, of how much of the universe is beyond our grasp."

* "Mary Lyn Ray s "Stars"...splendidly treats its subject with the matter-of-fact openness of childhood reminiscent of classics such as "A Hole Is to Dig...."Physically, the book is a thing of understated beauty.... This is the kind of bigger-than-it-seems book that exemplifies picture books at their finest. Young dreamers in particular will appreciate the imaginative approach, and they ll especially enjoy experiencing this fanciful rhapsody as a bedtime book especially if shared by flashlight in the warmth of a summer night under the stars."

* "Stars. Who hasn't looked up in the sky and contemplated their magical presence?.... The winning combination of Ray and Frazee crystallizes these ideas into a near-perfect picture book that encourages children's minds to wander and wonder. The airy illustrations move across the pages like clouds in the sky, showing star shapes everywhere, even in strawberry plants, pumpkin vines, and snowflakes. In a final message, the book asks children to remember that stars are around whether you see them or not: "Every night. Everywhere." Lovely."

*"Ray s simple ode to stars is an engaging concept book.... Frazee s deft sketches of a diverse array of young children, scattered on white or mottled blue pages, are both playful and evocative.... [Stars] celebrates everyday experiences of children, prompting observation of the world around us, and it s beautifully structured for eliciting children s conversation and response. There are bits of humor and poetry, an engaging cast of players/star watchers, and many possibilities for pairing the book with crafts, activities, and other books, too."
