Praise for the Book
"This book is truly a delightful children's book. It has a simple story line that engages young readers. My youngest spent quite a long time flipping back and forth through the pages asking me to explain the illustrations. There is one picture of a star in a hay stack that my two-year-old finds particularly intriguing, prompting lots of questions and comments. Overall, the book give a vintage feel with the voice of a child, making it a sweet nighttime read." ~ Jenny H.
"This is such a sweet little story! It is absolutely perfect for my 4-year old daughter who loves her books and loves to read. (Makes her mama proud!) [...] I absolutely love that it was written by a mother and daughter – it makes it that much more special. This is a great story for the little ones. Wonderful job, Bethany & Katie! Love the illustrations, too!" ~ Lori
"This is a cute story that teaches that each being has a home but a friendship can still be there. This was a cute way to teach children about the North Star and its importance." ~ Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock

My Review

By Lynda Dickson
Katie and the North Star is written by Bethany Lopez and her daughter Katie, after whom the main character is named. In the story, Katie befriends a fallen star and wants it to stay with her. However, she finds out this star is Polaris, the North Star, who must make its way home. Katie learns about the importance of the North Star in helping travelers find their way.
The illustrations by Hetty Mitchell are absolutely delightful; I just wish there were more of them. They give the story an old-fashioned feel and, because of this, the story is timeless.
This book will teach your little ones about friendship - and even a bit of astronomy!
