Over the past few weeks we have been reading a very special book. A book which is celebrating it's 10th anniversary this year. A book I cannot believe we didn't already own. How to Catch a Star by Oliver Jeffers.
The story is a delightful tale of a boy who loves stars and wishes he had one of his own. He tries everything to catch one, pushing his imagination to the limit and ultimately succeeding in the most unusual way.
The story shows children that no dream is too big to follow and with patience, perseverance and imagination you can achieve anything you set your mind to.
Oliver Jeffers not only wrote the tale he illustrated it with the most gorgeous watercolours which capture the story perfectly, bringing the boy and his quest to life. It has won numerous awards and become a modern children's classic.
Little E loves the simplicity of this book and now she is familiar with the story she has started to tell me about the boy and gets very animated when he catches his 'star' at the end. It is a lovely bedtime read and her new glow in the dark stars which came with our special review kit let her relive the magic of the story every night as they shine down from her ceiling.
If you don't already own this book grab a copy and read it with your children to remind yourself that we live in a world of infinite possibilities.
Published by Harper Collins, the 10th anniversary edition of How to Catch a Star, £12.99, is available now from www.amazon.co.uk
We were sent this book for review purposes but all opinions are our own.
