The Lovereading4Kids comment

One night a star falls out of the sky and lands in the middle of a zoo. But no amount of boasting and competing by the various animals to get the sky back home into the sky seems to work. It is only when the most unlikely of insect comes along, not a zoo animal at all, that together with his mates he manages to get the star back home. A perfect storytime adventure that will teach children the value of how working together is fun. Delightful illustrations complement the text.

Synopsis

The Storytime: The Star of the Zoo by Virginie Zurcher, Daniel Howarth

The animals are settling down for the night when a shooting star falls into the zoo. Little Star is desperate to get back home, but who will help her? One by one, each of the animals offers to help Little Star, but none of them are tall enough to reach the sky. Finally Ant comes forward. Together with all of her friends and family, Ant makes a tower tall enough to get Little Star home. Their work done, the animals finally go to sleep. High above them, Little Star twinkles like a diamond in the sky.
