LoveReading View on Reach for the Stars

A group of animal friends think they have found some stars that have fallen to earth. Together they endeavour to get the stars back into the sky.

Reach for the Stars is a book about teamwork and encouraging others to do their best. This is book three of a larger series however I think they could be read in any order. This is a very unusual book as it is designed to be read aloud by a group, giving 4 children the chance to be one of the characters and allowing them to read the book between them. I liked that the contribution from each character is clearly stated at the start as I think this could be a nice way to encourage less confident, or perhaps younger readers to join in. At the end of the book are suggestions for discussion and a chance to explore our feelings.

I liked the illustrations, which are clear and colourful and I think that Reach for the Stars is a good book for early readers to enjoy. I think that this is a lovely book to share with friends or siblings and take it in turns to be each character.

Reach for the Stars Synopsis

A Picture book with a difference! This book is the third book in the BLUE MARBLE BUDDIES Series.

An animal characters picture book series consisting of all dialogue stories designed to be read aloud together. Each book entails engaging, adventurous stories to be enjoyed by the whole family or for small groups of self-reading older children.

In this story, Boone the black bear, Hectare the hare and Chanda the panda are in Africa helping their buddy Zuri the Xerus, find a fallen star. Once they believe they have found the star, each buddy attempts to return it back to the sky.

Although, the buddies learn this task is not as easy as it seems, especially with other animals closely watching.

Children will love the humorous story and characters of this read-aloud book to be enjoyed together in a group of four. Reading aloud together encourages active readers and listeners, promoting social interaction and bonding. Create wonderful memories through shared reading.
