Description

Oliver Jeffers is known for his award-winning picture books, which have been translated into over 30 languages.

A story about possibilities and disappointments with a triumphant ending, all of which Jeffers captures through the beautifully expressive changing moods of his little boy. Celebrate the 10th anniversary of How to Catch a Star with this new toddler-friendly board book edition! It made me realise that while losing someone is, indeed, horrible but shutting yourself away in a protective shell doesn't help the situation nor is it something that person would ever want. The beautiful child-like innocence and awe we used to have is something he perfectly portrays in his writing and illustrations.Update: have seen some more of this author's work for slightly older children and appreciate the illustrations and the quirky style a bit better now. I could see this as a good way to teach children about rather heavy subjects such as depression, anxiety, loss and mourning.

He is also well known for his illustration and artwork, and his distinctive paintings have been exhibited in galleries worldwide. When my mum and/or dad dies, I'll be sure to not put my heart in a bottle and will, instead, accept those feelings of loss and pain. I will get through it, and when I do, I'll make sure to treasure every memory I have of them and tell myself that they are not truly dead, because they'll live long in the memories I have of them.

The children in my setting loved the story, they are big fans of the nursery rhyme Twinkle twinkle little star, so I knew they would be interested in this.
