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!!

Purchased as a gift for a two-year old and the parents are loving it. Personally, I thought it was a very pretty book....the illustrations all have the appearance of being painted on the pages. On the first page you have the original Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star poem and then the poem changes slightly as the book goes on.

My students love this book. The illustrations are great. I change it by having the students sing the song using the animal sounds of each picure. For the lions we sing "Roar, roar, roar, roar..." to the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star". So much fun!!!

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.

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

Do you have a baby or toddler that loves simple tunes and nursery rimes, but you're tried of singing the same verse over and over again? This book is for you. Nice illustrations with animal parent and baby combinations on every page, in different types of environments. Good memorable lyrics. A nice bedtime book, and the soft-cover is super thin for traveling.

Beautiful illustrations! Easy to read the whole book to the tune of twinkle twinkle little star. My favorite part about this book, though, is the pictures. My kids (4 and 2) just sit there slowly going through the pages while enjoying the pictures.

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.
