For as long as I can remember, every Christmas Eve my family would gather around my dad as he read this story to us. Although we are all adults now, and two spouses have entered the family, we all still look forward to hearing this story read aloud. We practically know it by heart. It captures the warmth and beauty of the simplicity of sharing, with humorous characters and perfect illustrations to match. And I know the tradition will continue on in our own families.

If you are looking to capture the essence of giving, joy and companionship this is the book. Although it is a "Christmas" story it extends far beyond any celebration or holiday to a celebration of life, giving and appreciating what we have. Like Byrd Baylor's THE OTHER WAY TO LISTEN, this book harkens to what is invisible to the eye. That sense of that connection of heart and spirit shared be all living things, whether you come from the stars or live seemingly old and alone on the outskirts of village which has long forgotten you are there. It is an answer to the age old question, What does last forever? A must for any serious collector of children's books!!!!!

If you want to start a Christmas tradition for your children, their children and following generations...this is THE book to have. It's a story about giving, sharing and all those important ideals we want our children to carry with them into adulthood.

I have read this book EVERY year for the past 15 years and I just read it again. I laugh and then I cry and then when it's over I hold it tight for just a minute to make sure the happy feeling lasts! My grandchilren are old enough now for us to enjoy it together...and we will.

My mother has bought me a Christmas book every year since I was born. She writes the year and my age on the first page. She gave me Star Mother when I was eleven and it is a joyous story that I have been returning to for the past thirteen years. When I feel lonely or melancholy I will read it and it always warms up my heart and I can feel the love that all human beings are capable of giving. It's a tremendous example of the universal desire for companionship and love

This book is humorous and the plot is cleverly presented. I have read to this book to my Second Graders for 6 or 7 years. It is always well received. The language is highly descriptive and a joy to read. You can picture both characters asking "Is this too much to ask?" Enjoy it!
