Shine, Star, Shine ! is a very educational book one that I fully recommend as it’s like a little encyclopaedia that’s all about our planet Earth. Inside this book children can find out how a star is born and about our biggest star the Sun. At the back of the book children can find out some more exciting educational star facts. Although this book is aimed at children between 3 to 7 it’s very suitable for children much older. I loved this educational book and even found out a few things that I didn’t know. I hope all schools stock this book in their classroom or school library.
