Star in the Jar

Written by Sam Hay, illustrated by Sarah Massini

Little ones are natural treasure hunters, it’s everywhere to them. They are closer to it than we adults are, physically and mentally. It fills their pockets and their imaginations. This little boy finds a very special treasure. His sister and he think it could be someone else’s treasure, so they ask around. When they found no one they know lost it, he kept it. He loved it, played with it, took it in a jar everywhere he went. At night, it got bright, but started to look sad. He looked up at the sky and saw it! A message from the stars. They has lost a friend. This book melted my heart and made me smile a shiny smile all at the same time.
