Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This charming picture book opens with the first, familiar stanza of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star,” written more than 100 years ago by Jane Taylor, who is not credited here. Cabrera replaces the seldom-heard remaining verses with new ones, in which the star sparkles, flickers, and shimmers over different parts of the earth, such as forest, ocean, and desert. Each of the first nine double-page paintings features a little animal and its parent looking over a distinctive landscape while a bright-yellow star glows in the sky. The concluding stanza opens with the star shining down on the whole earth, seen from space. Although the text works fine for reading aloud, adults who sing the book aloud will probably stumble over the last stanza, which has eight four-beat lines rather than six. Musical notes and chord notations for the familiar tune are appended. Cabrera’s distinctive paintings of baby animals and their parents create a riveting focus for young children, and the bold lines, energetic brushwork, and naive style should please their parents as well. A fresh take on an old favorite. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Carolyn Phelan

When it's time for the little guy to hit the sack, this is the book to soothe him to sleep. The book is a series of pictures of a daddy (or mommy) animal & baby gazing at the stars on succeeding pages (owls, deer, whales, etc). On each page are different and brilliant lyrics to "twinkle twinkle little star." The book is visually fantastic with big beautiful colorful artwork that the little guy just stares at. It is a great book. It can be read or sung to the little guy, I usually do both every night. My wife cries when I read it to him, that's how awesome this book is!!

This is a really sweet, beautiful book that reimagines the lullaby with lovely illustrations. My two year old loves it.

My nephew (almost 2) loves a twinkle twinkle little star YouTube video that stars an owl. I found this book and thought he might enjoy it. His parents tell me he immediately recognized the connection and loves the book.

I bought this book for my 2 year old daughter and she LOVES IT!! I bought this book because she loves to try and sing the song "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star." This book is wonderful. It continues the "song" and shows beautiful illustrations of scenes from around the world. My daughther requests this boook almost every night as her bedtime book. She even tries to read along with me. I purchased this book solely because of the title, and I am SOOOO glad that I did. We are also using the book to help with her animal and shape recognition. If your child likes Twinkle Twinkle little star and animals this book is a "MUST HAVE".

We really like Jane Cabrera's stuff. The artwork is great--good clear colors and great animals. No weird "interpretations" of animals or anything like that. This one is one of our favorites--nice for bedtime.

My Granddaughter loved this book and the change in lyrics with a classic song. The pictures are also great with mother baby animal pairs.

We have 3 hardcover books by Jane Cabrera. My son is almost 2 years old and loves owl and loves the song Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, but this book does not seem to attract him. The illustrations are nice but this book is kind of hard to read (not sure if better to sing or read as the words are like a song). But I would recommend her other 2 books titled "Panda Big and Panda Small" & "Mommy Carry Me Please!".
