Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Jane Cabrera. Holiday House, $16.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8234-2519-8
Cabrera expands on this classic nursery rhyme, taking readers around the globe as friendly parent-child animal pairs cuddle together and gaze up at a chunky five-pointed star in the night sky. With each new verse, Cabrera switches both the setting and the quality of the star’s light: “Glisten, glisten, little star/ how I wonder what you are./ Up above the grassy plain.../ through the warm, wet jungle rain.” Bright colors and thickly painted vignettes generate a mood of comfort and safety, culminating in a scene that shows a human mother and child staring at the star before bedtime. Ages 2–5. (Aug.)
