Sparkie a star afraid of the dark teaches children how to overcome their fears with help from others.
Sparkie: A Star Afraid of the Dark is a good book for kids, with a strong, positive message.
The illustrations in the book have a soft and dream-like feel to them. Yet, the colors seem to jump off the page. The colors really do seem like the colors of a night sky, especially right at or just after sunset. Kids are sure to enjoy seeing Sparkie and his friends, as the pictures strongly accompany the text and offer a visual experience that kids will enjoy. It does a good job of showing kids that, with just a little bit of love, encouragement, and support, they can overcome even the most daunting fears, or even help others overcome a fear. And, the pictures will keep the kids wanting to come back to Sparkie over and over again.
