    This is a lovely book with beautiful illustrations. My daughter loves the classic rhyme and I thought the silver star on each page was a nice touch.

    This has the entire poem, not just the first stanza known to most people. What makes this book remarkable are Michael Hague's gorgeous illustrations!

Awards this book received: This book has not received any awards. 2. Appropriate grade level(s): This book is appropriate for children in preschool to third grade. 3. Summary: This book is about two young, eager children on the night of Christmas Eve. The happy family prepares their house for Santa to come and deliver presents, writing a note to Santa, decorating the Christmas tree, and laying out cookies. As it becomes later in the night, Santa is led to the children’s house by the shining star in the sky. The children were up so late to welcome Santa that they became exhausted, however, they continued to stay up until morning came. 4. Review: I love how this book takes a children’s song and transforms it into an elaborate, exciting story that children can relate to. I think the illustrations are very detailed and realistic, which adds to the connection between the story and the audience. I noticed that every page in the book had smoothly rhyming sentences that flowed easily to make for a more enjoyable, easy read. 5. Uses in the classroom: - This book can aid children that already know the song, “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star,” so they can follow along with the story and pictures, and recognize any new words within the book. - This book can facilitate a discussion about a time in their life where they remember looking forward to something special. - This book can introduce the concept of stars and what a star in the sky is.

This story is in a Christmas theme and tells the story of "the traveller in the dark" also known as, Santa Clause! In the poem, Santa comes to the homes of children guided by a twinkling star in the winter sky. On this Christmas Eve, Santa visits the home of a sweet girl who is the speaker of the poem. The poem is her thank you to the star for bringing Santa to her home. 4. I have never heard of or seen this rendition of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" and I absolutely loved it. In the appropriate setting I could see this poem being a nice addition to the holiday season. 5. A) During a unit on holidays around the world, this poem could be used to introduce the Christmas tradition of Santa Clause visiting homes on Christmas Eve and leaving gifts for children. B) For non-readers this book could be used as an illustration scavenger hunt. Throughout the poem are many small items hidden in the illustrations such as a star ornament, a cat, a wrapped present, and many more. Students would be given a page of the things they need to find within the illustrations.

    I got really interested in Judy Mastrangelo right when I first met her work. A contemporary artist doing such a meticulous artwork in this classic, traditional style is a really rare thing to find. I was very intrigued and curious to read and see her books. The Star is a book illustrating the famous poem Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star by Jane Taylor. I think the book is nice. The illustrations inside the book are as lovely as the cover illustration.

The ageless, soft style in pink, blue and yellow of the illustrations fits nicely this classic poem. I appreciate the dedication with which these images were made, creating a dreamy world of orderly, sweet beauty. The design and formatting of the book are ok, but I think that these illustrations deserve more refined formatting. I recommend this book for children and adults who appreciate soft, classic, traditional illustration.

    Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star by Jane Taylor is an extension of the traditional one. This version has a Christmas twist. In this book the children realize that Santa is lost and have to help him find his way using the stars. I did like this book and the Christmas twist however this book would be most useful around December time not all year round. I did enjoy this version though and I can picture the students enjoying it as well. This book is appropriate for 3-6 year olds.

    In this song book, it is Christmas time and the children sing this song to show how the light of the star has guided Santa and his elves into the home of children’s houses. This book is a rendition of the nineteenth century version and is a lot different than the nursery rhyme song that children are familiar with today.

    Gorgeous version of one of my favorite lullabies--it even has the additional verses. Unfortunately it also has a center "POP-UP"--a foldout that will get wrecked probably by the first little user. Plus it has a design where you read the first two verses, then flip the book upside down for the rest. The result is a book that is too gimicky to circulate--and I am not even sure I will be able to use it in story hour. Wish the reviews I read had noted these problems. Caveat emptor....

    1. No Awards 2. Pre-K - K. 3. This is a rendition of the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. It is a holiday Christmas version of the story. The children stay up to wait for Santa, they are afraid that he will not show up. Once Santa arrives they thank the stars for helping him find his way. 4. I think this a dated version of Christmas.

    This book is a read along that goes to the tune of the song “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” that adds a plot to the well-known song. Mem Fox talks a lot about books with a tune help children memorize the context of the book so much more, that later contributes to the true art of reading instead of just remembering the words. Also, there are detailed, expressive illustrations that won’t only draw your readers in but also help them link the words to the setting/pictures.

    -N/A -ages 4-8 -SUMMARY: This spin on a classical song is illustrated effectively in this book. Added verses to the song make this book interesting to read. There are expected lines and unexpected lines making this classical song unique. -REVIEW: I enjoy the layout of the book, the picture is one whole page and then the corresponding words are placed on the opposite side. The pictures are traditional and create an authentic feel to the story. -IN-CLASS: 1. transition 2. rhyming

I like this book, it is very traditional yet adds a twist onto the song that we all know and love. It’s simple yet adds a nice story through its illustrations. 5. This book can be used around Christmas time to bring up discussions of what we do to prepare for Santa.

    For Ages: 3-7 Summary: An adorable story told in a song form about stars and how they guide people through the night. Review: Can't help but sing along as you read the text and look at the great illustrations. Classroom Use: A good book to show the children how a song can be put into a book form so they are able to see text being used in multiple ways. Gives them a better understanding of how text can work. For Ages: 3-7 Summary: An adorable story told in a song form about stars and how they guide people through the night.

    The words are the song "Twinkle, twinkle little star." A little boy is looking at an atlas in his room and gets transported in (probably in his imagination) to the three kings following the star and then to the city of Bethlehem. A sweet Christmas book.
