I Like Stars (Step into Reading, Step 1) by Margaret Wise Brown, illustrated by Joan Paley is an easy reader about the many kinds of stars there are to like. I read the board book version. Apparently this was originally part of The Friendly Book that was published in 1954 by Golden Books.

Paley's bright, colorful illustrations match Brown's simple text well. Rabbit, frog, bird, and mouse are featured. My favorite images are through window, green, four colors, and last page.

Using 24 words and some

It is a quickie book that makes you want to go out to the balcony and look at the stars.

This book opens up the child in me again, and in this book I could see the Margaret's happiness when she was out on that night, looking at the stars; I was taken aback to become a child again.

I really like this book, for it encourages me to dream, to know that out there, there are still stars looking at you, cares for you, and knows that even if you are alone, they are there for you.
And no matter how differe
I Like Stars is a beautifully illustrated beginners book. The illustration is by Joan Paley and her use in colors and arrangement is calming and inviting. I would use this as a picture book and introduce a few vocabulary words to accompany it. I could incorporate this book along with a science lesson as an added activity.

This is a sweet little book! The simplicity of it allows small children to participate easily, yet it still captures their imagination. My favorite phrase is, "shining right straight in your eye."

I like stars!

My granddaughters love these early reader books,they love to read them on the PC KINDLE ap,the colours of the illustrations are really good and for some reason they can follow the story much easier than in a regular book,we are hooked!

My little one loves finding stars everywhere so I'm glad we stumbled upon this one at the library today. She is two, so the very simple text was great for her and also made a fast read. We counted the stars, found different colors, and read the text many times. Great for little ones!

Took this out thinking we might read it after Natalie's Twilight Turtle arrived, but we never did. We took out a board book edition. It was a nice poem and pleasant illustrations, but did not have that special something for me.
By Margaret Wise Brown. Josh says I like stars, too. Most of the star colors are real. The only star color that is not real is green.

The text is great, the art is blah. Is this a reillustration of an older edition? If so, I'd like to see that one.

Margaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories during her life, but she is best known for Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny. Even though she died nearly 60 years ago, her books still sell very well.

Margaret loved animals. Most of her books have animals as characters in the story. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them. Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or p
