When a young girl learns that a bright light in the sky is coming from a dying star, she promises to keep it company until the light goes out. "Hello, Star," she whispers to it. "I know you're scared, but you're not alone." Every night the girl reassures her friend that she is still there. As the years pass, the girl learns everything she can about planets, space, and the universe, inspired by her dimming friend — until she realizes she needs to do something more. What if she could really be up there, with her star?
With lyrical text by Stephanie V.W. Lucianovic and stunning illustrations by #1 New York Times bestselling artist Vashti Harrison, Hello, Star is an inspiring story about a love of science and the importance of empathy. This touching tribute to stars, space, and science celebrates how a small act of compassion can flourish into a life full of meaning and wonder.
