I really loved The Stuff of Stars, which won the Coretta Scott King award a few weeks ago. When I read this book, I was disappointed to discover that it's basically delivering the same message as The Stuff of Stars, but not in a unique or appealing way. As I mentioned in my review of The Whole Wide World and Me, it seems like picture books don't tell stories anymore. Rather, they spout messages that sound more insightful and important than they actually are. I liked the artwork fine, but this "you're a star because we're all stars" attitude is just too cheesy and touchy-feely for me. I really wanted to like the book, but it just didn't happen.
