Why? What? Where? How? Children are full of questions as their minds are busy figuring out the intricacies and immensities of themselves and their universe. Stardust Child was inspired by the words of renowned astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson. “We are biologically connected to everything in the world. We are all, not figuratively, but literally, made of stardust.” The story of Stardust Child celebrates that we all share the same essence despite limiting labels and cultural differences. Picture by picture, the story instills the concept of our oneness, our ecological interdependence, and the unique light that each of us brings to the world. Keep asking questions!

Stardust Child is a light and enchanting story that highlights the profound connectivity of the cosmos to everything else in our daily lives. Joann Leonard manages to simplify a very complex matter (pun intended!) so that children of all ages can understand how all things originate from stardust. Stardust Child is the wonderment of science depicted in pictures and rhythmic verse. Colorful and engaging art accompanies the written cadence to connect the reader to this charming story just as the story, itself, connects Stardust Child to the universe.
