It’s the kind of night when you just can’t fall asleep.
You feel as though everyone in the world is asleep but you.
“Oh, I see a light!
Is somebody awake?”
Brimming with wonder and enchantment, award-winning author-illustrator Sang-Keun Kim’s Star Fishing imagines who else might be awake on a sleepless night—taking young readers and listeners on an adventure through the stars and into sweet dreams.
What I loved: This book has absolutely gorgeous, dream-like illustrations that capture the magic of dreams. The collection of baby animals is a sweet story of friendship and play with messages of never being alone. The soft and simple text works well for bedtime, with many aptly drawn and colored images telling most of the story and leading to sleep. As they make the constellations, it creates a lovely message about the night sky and warm feelings of friendship as they drift off to sleep.
Final verdict: A great bedtime picture book, STAR FISHING will resonate with readers who are having trouble sleeping and help lull them to sleep with its soft and sweet story.
