This stunningly illustrated and heartfelt book tells the story of a mother bear and her child, who leave their house on an adventure in search of a star, in a warm tale of love, family and home. Look up at the stars, so high above me. If I could just hold one, how happy I'd be! A parent and child go in search of a star, journeying through dark woods, accross rough seas and through snow and ice to the top of Mount Digger-Doo in order to reach their goal, but what will happen when they find it out of reach? This lyrical picture book celebrates adventure, coming home, love - and the idea that sometimes what you are looking for is right under your nose. A relaxing and mindful read that's perfect for any parent who is looking to soothe their child at bedtime.
