To coincide with the 10th anniversary of Oliver Jeffers debut children’s book ‘How to catch a star’, we were sent a lovely package featuring the book itself (and one to giveaway at a later date), glow in the dark stars (which I’m saving for Jacks bedroom), a USB stick full of activities and a copy of those activity sheets for Jack to tackle.

How to catch a star is a lovely story about a little boy who tries his hardest to catch a star and follow his dreams. You can preorder your own copy from Amazon for £10.27, release date 27th March. Oliver Jeffers has written other classics such as The day the crayons quit and This Moose belongs to me, but How to catch a star was his very first children’s picture book and was created when Oliver caught the reflection of an early evening star while enjoying a plate of prawns at a fish market on a pier. Reminded of the Brer Rabbit story The moon in the mill pond he began sketching ways that  someone could try if they wanted to catch a star. Before long the book was born and has since won countless awards such as the Bisto book of the year and shortlisted for Booktrusts best new illustrator.

Lost and found and The way back home follow the same little boy as he returns a penguin to the South pole and journeys to the moon.

My own little superstar loves books just as much as I do so when we settled down to enjoy our newest story he was so excited. Snuggling up close with his bear in his arms he sat and listened as I told him the story and pointed out the stars for me when I asked if he could see them.

I like to Jack explore books as he chooses and at his own pace so while I set up a colouring activity he flicked back through the book pointing to the images and trying to tell me what they were (star and rocket are a little too difficult for him at the moment). In the activity sheets supplied in the box is a colour in page which was perfect for Jack. Heres the link to download your own, How to Catch a Star Activity Sheets.

Excuse the cape, I told you he was my Superstar ;)
