Best friends Bear and Mole can't wait to go camping and sleep under the stars—but Mole worries, what if they get lost in the dark?

Rolling up sleeping bags, picking fresh berries, and climb-climb-climbing, the two buddies are having a great time hiking to Camp Tiptop. They especially can't wait to watch the sunset. But Mole soon realizes that when the sun goes down. . .it will be dark. What if they get lost?

Seeing Mole nervous, Bear decides to tell his friend the legend of a special star—the First Star—that will always help them find their way.

Featuring the popular characters and cozy illustrations of Will Hillenbrand's other Bear and Mole adventures, including Off We Go!, Spring is Here, and All For a Dime!, First Star is a perfect bedtime book, an ode to friendship, and a gentle reminder that no matter how dark it gets, your loved ones will always help you find your way.
