Katie and the North Star
is written by Bethany Lopez and her daughter Katie, after whom the main character is named. In the story, Katie befriends a fallen star and wants it to stay with her. However, she finds out this star is Polaris, the North Star, who must make its way home. Katie learns about the importance of the North Star in helping travelers find their way.
The illustrations by Hetty Mitchell are absolutely delightful; I just wish there were more of them. They give the story an old-fashioned feel and, because of this, the story is timeless.
This book will teach your little ones about friendship - and even a bit of astronomy!
I received this book in return for an honest review.
