Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This charming picture book opens with the first, familiar stanza of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, written more than 100 years ago by Jane Taylor, who is not credited here. Cabrera replaces the seldom-heard remaining verses with new ones, in which the star sparkles, flickers, and shimmers over different parts of the earth, such as forest, ocean, and desert. Each of the first nine double-page paintings features a little animal and its parent looking over a distinctive landscape while a bright-yellow star glows in the sky. The concluding stanza opens with the star shining down on the whole earth, seen from space. Although the text works fine for reading aloud, adults who sing the book aloud will probably stumble over the last stanza, which has eight four-beat lines rather than six. Musical notes and chord notations for the familiar tune are appended. Cabrera's distinctive paintings of baby animals and their parents create a riveting focus for young children, and the bold lines, energetic brushwork, and naive style should please their parents as well. A fresh take on an old favorite.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "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.)
