Shannon’s Thoughts:

A little star in the night sky wants to be special and part of something big.  He gets his wish and shines brightly as an announcement to all about a special birth.

The illustrations are charming and whimsical. The stars feeling of wanting more and being special like other stars in the sky is relatable for most.

Although I understand the feeling of wanting and waiting to be special I feel like the the telling of the story was lacking. I wanted the story telling to match the adorable imagery and it fell flat.

I think the story idea is a good one but I feel the execution of the story is not where it needs to be.
