March 2022 Book of the Month | A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month March 2022

Ada loves watching the stars. Its hard to see them well from her home in New York City where there are always so many lights on – even at night. So she can’t wait to visit her grandparents in their quiet home by the sea. Here the nights get properly dark so that the stars shine really brightly. Ada is impatient for night to fall . To entertain her until it does, her grandfather introduces her to all the things of interest on the sea shore as well as telling her all about how the stars are made. He explains the gigantic scale of the galaxies and the incredible and impossible amount of time it would take her to actually reach the stars…Full of life and wonder and raising many of the questions that all children ask, the book is given an extra dimension by the clever interweaving of vivid contemporary illustrations with mind-expanding photographs taken from the Hubble telescope.
