Reviewed by Rita V for Readers Favorite Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star is a marvelous children's book written by Jerry Pinkney. Through the eyes of a curious little chipmunk, we get to explore the beauty of nature as he views it; thus, giving the reader a glance from his rare perspective. We see the beauty of a simple spider web, a bird's nest, the clouds and the wind, the moon and the stars, an elegant lily pad, magic in the water and a breathtaking swan. The wording flows free and musically throughout the pages right along with the most stunning and visually stimulating artwork. This beautiful children's book is filled with the most exquisite illustrations that I have ever laid my eyes upon! The book's cover captured my full attention, and the pages are each unique masterpieces beyond what words can describe. The wildlife and nature are depicted so delicately and creatively that I, literally, spent minutes on each page just taking in all of the delightful artwork. Jerry Pinkney is a true and master artist. I loved the Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star wording throughout the book, as well, as it sets the mood of calmness and soothes the reader with its powerful and magical pages. This is truly the most beautiful children's book I have ever seen. The rare perspective through a chipmunk's eye is truly visionary and creative. Every child and adult will absolutely adore this book, and it is a must have for a baby nursery, a gift for any occasion, or just because! Anyone can see that Jerry Pinkney's artistic passion comes from within his soul, and by sharing it with us, he truly inspires his readers and touches our hearts with awe.
