How to Catch a Star by Oliver Jeffers is a classic children’s picture book that tells the story of a young boy eager to catch a star from the sky.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the book a special set has been put together which we were lucky to receive including a hardback copy of the book, some glow in the dark ceiling stars and a star shaped usb stick. There were also lots of activity sheets which my children have been having lots of fun with. The special edition of the How to Catch a Star book includes a letter from the author and previously unpublished drawings. Aimed at ages 2 to 7 years, this is perfect for both my children to enjoy being aged 3 and 6.
How to Catch a Star follows a young boy who loves stars and spends many hours gazing up at them. It then shows the journey of his efforts to catch his own star and after various attempts he finally finds one. The book is simply yet beautifully illustrated with full colour pages that keep little ones entertained whilst listening to the story.
This has made the perfect bedtime reading for 3yr old Mister B as it’s a relaxing easy read that doesn’t bring too much excitement yet has a storyline that little one’s love. Mister B loved it when the boy went up in his rocket to search for a star.
The activity sheets proved a big hit with both my children, Mister B loving the mazes which he could sit and do with his finger. He loves following the lines around hitting a “dead end” before having to turn back and find an alternative path.
Miss M who loves her cutting and sticking was immediately attracted to the mobile to make. She sat carefully cutting out each shape before glueing them together with a piece of cotton inside. I then helped her to stick them to a cross that we made out of sturdy cardboard strips. She was so proud of her effort and wanted it hung in her bedroom so she could look at it whilst in bed.
Why not print the activity sheets for you little ones to do?
Released on 27th March 2014, How to Catch a Star is available from Amazon for £12.99.
