Review: The Night the Stars Went Out

A darling reminder... (5 stars)

When a hard working alien has to visit Earth to find what he needs to fix the stars he learns a very important lesson. While this is a book that kids will adore, I think the message of not taking everything so seriously, will really resonate with hard working moms and dads. I know I felt a tiny bit chastised as I read it to my 6 year old. A really good one to read at bedtime!
