Sam Hay

Named a Parents Best Children's Books 2018"!
What would you do with a fallen star?
When a little boy stumbles across a lost star, he decides to take care of it, putting it in a jar and carrying it with him everywhere. But when the sky calls out for its missing star, can the little boy and his sister figure out a way to return the star to its friends in the sky… even if it means saying goodbye forever?
This warm-hearted and enchanting bedtime story celebrates the rewards of true friendship.
