James Mayhew, Starlight Sailor (Barefoot Books, 2009)

Full disclosure: since I wrote this review, and in part because of our reactions to Starlight Sailor and I Took the Moon for a Walk, my wife and mother-in-law have become Barefoot Books distributors.

Gentle fantasy book with lovely rhythm and rhyme. The illustrations may take a touch of getting used to, but they're distinctive and fun, and the story is wonderful for imaginative pre-litters (and aren't they all imaginative at that age?). This is

This is a childrens' book illustrated by Jackie Morris. I love her work. It's a wonderful story with illustrations that are magical and inspiring. I enjoyed reading on Jackie's blog about her process to illustrate the boat in this book.

I used to make those kinds of paper boats in church using church bulletins.

A perfect addition for every nursery's library! A sweet, dreamy, rhyming tale that follows a young boy after he wishes on evening's first star. The beautiful watercolor illustrations perfectly capture the feeling of this lovely book.

A beautiful classic theme. The water colored pictures and overall illustrations are stunning. The story content ebbs and flows beautifully introducing with a familiar poem. I wished that the book was a little bigger because the pre-school audience enjoyed finding the different characters in each page during storytime. This book works great for bedtime and/or story hour.
