Off late during bedtime, Nathan is not getting enough of his bedtime stories. We have glow-in-the-dark stickers in our room and one night he asked me a question: does a star have a name. I said yes, and pointed to a verse in Isaiah 40:26, “Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.”
I was searching for books that talk more about this and I found this book. As usual, Amazon priced it way too high, but it said to read it free on Kindle Unlimited. I read the book and it was a perfect bedtime story.
The book starts with a beautiful star named Stella, shining in the night sky. One night she gets lost and she is hopelessly running around trying to find her way back home. She asks for help from the moon, the sun and a comet. All gave excuses, and Stella was so sad. All of a sudden a bright morning star came and the star knew Stella’s name and even took her home.
A beautiful story for the children and they will be happy to know there’s a star named after them. The illustrations are so good and it’s a heartwarming book for younger kids.
