The Sun takes pity on her and shatters a golden ray into many pieces, which she is tasked with placing in the sky. I actually didn’t know it would be a children’s book and I plan to gladly donate it to my local library who does not have a copy.

Her style incorporates her love of nature and her Indian roots and explores the relationships between pattern, shapes and colour.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Mistry's style so perfectly lends itself to this (original, I believe) fable about how a young girl placed stars in the heavens as way to help guide her fisherman father home on moonless nights.

Folklore tales and stories of Hindu Gods and Goddesses have been a rich source of inspiration in a number of her illustrations.Another idea to use in the classroom related to this text would be to identify the main idea and use supporting details to explain it. Girl’ persists through adversity and difficult situations to complete the tasks she has set herself, even though she knows this is going to take an extremely long time.

It explains how she placed the north star to always lead him north, and the other stars in perfect consolations of animals who wanted their portrait in the sky. Accompanied with incredibly stunning and intricate illustrations, this picture book would make a great addition to the bedtime routine. Therefore, Bookwagon is delighted to read and recommend another title by this distinct and wonderful creator.

The sun takes pity on the girl and throws a golden ray of light down to earth, where it shatters into a million glittering pieces. There was just the right amount of choice to suit everyone without being overwhelming and I received comments from parents and staff about the quality of books offered compared to previous sales which have always been based around current crazes and well known celebrity authors. This enchanting contemporary folk tale about how the stars were made is exquisitely illustrated, beautifully combining colour, shape and pattern. In this story, the sun sends down a ray of light that shatters, and the daughter is told to place them in the sky to provide light for her father.

Definitely recommend for any other fans of really pretty picture books, and/or mythology and world tales. Fans of traditional tales will enjoy this story as will anyone who has ever gazed up into the sky in wonder at the impossible-to-count twinkling orbs high above them. Poonam’s upbringing and childhood have heavily influenced her work, in particular being surrounded by Indian fabrics, Kalamkari textiles, Madhubani paintings and hand-painted ornaments. however, although i love it when a book keeps to a theme the theme continued to the writing which made it difficult to read (dark font on dark background).After making many pictures of animals from the bag of stars she collected, a monkey steals the bag and spills them all over the sky. Your selection was perfect for our children and what really made the difference was your ability to engage with each child, discuss their interests and help them to choose a suitable book based on your extensive knowledge of the books you were selling. However, a monkey steals her bag of glittering pieces at one point, and when the two of them fight over the bag, the rest of the shards spill into the sky, ruining her patterns but lighting the way for her father. This folktale tells the origin story of how the stars we see in the sky and constellations came to be what they are.
