This book starts our with the well-known nursery rhyme "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and then adds more. There are some kittens who would like to meet the star and try various ways to get to it. When they do not succeed, the star comes to them. Of course, stars are too bright for eyes, so the kittens ask him to go back into the sky. This is a cute little story that could be used to introduce some counting (up to three), problem solving and inventions or innovations. Just a little introduction to various critical thinking skills along with a little singalong. A cute book for pre-school classes as well as family libraries.
