Description

A girl whose mum lives far away sends her a letter with a magic gift inside. But the true magic was inside the girl - all she had to do was believe. "Stardust" explores the emotions that come with having a parent in prison and not being able to see them on a regular basis. While the girl and her mum cannot see each other, they find a unique way to feel connected through the sky and stars, which creates a sense of safety and love that allows the girl to focus on positive memories she has of her mum. This book aims to give children hope, and the self-belief that they can achieve their goals and dreams despite the challenges they face.

Reviews

"This heartfelt, charmingly illustrated book acknowledges the loss children feel when a parent is incarcerated, while also providing a framework for resiliency and connection. It offers young readers and their caretakers an opportunity for discussion, a resource for comfort, and a quiet assurance that they are not alone." - Megan Comfort, author of "Doing Time Together: Love and Family in the Shadow of the Prison"
