Description

A story about possibilities and disappointments with a triumphant ending, all of which Jeffers captures through the beautifully expressive changing moods of his little boy. A wonderful book, beautiful illustrations and my 2 year old insists on it being read every night before he goes to bed.

We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners. It has wonderful illustrations and text which both hold the attention of the children and from which they can follow independently after listening to the story. Looking forward to getting some more books by this author for my little boy to enjoy when he's a little older. So one day, he decided to catch a star of his very own… From the shining talent of Oliver Jeffers, winner of the Bisto Award, this inspirational, glittering story captures the magic of reaching for dreams. Celebrate the 10th anniversary of How to Catch a Star with this new toddler-friendly board book edition!If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.

This is a magical, beautifully illustrated tale about reaching for dreams… Adults tend to think of waiting as tedious, but the magic of this book is that it understands waiting as children wait – alert, apprehensive and using their imaginations. His distinctive paintings have been exhibited in multiple cities, including the National Portrait Gallery in London and the Brooklyn Museum New York.

The beautiful child-like innocence and awe we used to have is something he perfectly portrays in his writing and illustrations. In 2013, Jeffers illustrated the vinyl cover (a drawing of Nelson Mandela) for the U2 song "Ordinary Love". When my mum and/or dad dies, I'll be sure to not put my heart in a bottle and will, instead, accept those feelings of loss and pain.

Every night he watched them sailing in the sky outside his bedroom window and dreamed of making friends with them, playing games of hide-and-seek together. It is an easy, quick read and I’d say Early years children would enjoy it mostly but it would also make a great book for young readers too. His outstanding talent has been recognised by several high-profile awards, including the Nestlé Children’s Book Prize Gold Award. An inspirational story from internationally bestselling, multi-prize-winning picture book creator Oliver Jeffers. He graduated from The University of Ulster in 2001 with First Class honours and has since exhibited his paintings around the world.Finally, just when the boy is ready to give up, he learns that sometimes things aren't where, or what, we expect them to be.

This is a magical, beautifully illustrated tale about reaching for dreams… Adults tend to think of waiting as tedious, but the magic of this book is that it understands waiting as children wait - alert, apprehensive and using their imaginations. I will get through it, and when I do, I'll make sure to treasure every memory I have of them and tell myself that they are not truly dead, because they'll live long in the memories I have of them. Althought the story is simple, remember you are reading to a child, my 2 yr old is amazed at how many things have stars in them other than the sky. Every night he watched the stars in the sky from his bedroom window and dreamed of how he could be their friend and how they could play hide-and-go-seek together. Whenever my toddler wakes up from his afternoon nap in inconsolable tears, as he occasionally does for some mysterious reason, this book always immediately comforts him from the opening page.

It made me realise that while losing someone is, indeed, horrible but shutting yourself away in a protective shell doesn't help the situation nor is it something that person would ever want.
