Are Your Stars Like My Stars? By Leslie Helakoski & Heidi Woodward Sheffield

Back of Book:
No matter where they live, all children gaze at the blue sky, bask in the warmth of the golden sun, dig in the rich dirt, and watch clouds grow soft and rosy at end of day. Through the eyes of one inquisitive and thoughtful young narrator, young readers explore the idea of perspective and come to realize that all of us, everywhere, share the colors of the world.
My Review:
I received a copy of this picture book from Sterling Book Press in exchange for an honest review.
“Are Your Stars Like My Stars” is a touching look at the concept of perspective. The story focuses on the many aspects that connect people globally. Using colors as guides this lyrical text invites readers to consider how their world is similar and different from others. Each concept mentioned is one that all children can relate to. The illustrations by Heidi Woodward Sheffield are filled with vivid colors and textures. They showcase children and adults from all cultures and countries around the world. This is a perfect story to read in classrooms or at home.
