    "There's so much to love about this book. First off the children depicted in the book are diverse and easy to identify by young readers who focus on the pictures. The art is bright, clear and full of little fun details.... Rhyming is very difficult to translate so it's not a direct translation from English to Spanish. However this does not take away from the book at all. The Spanish translator did a beautiful job still keeping to the spirit of the text. ...I recommend this book for early childhood classrooms and any adult who wants to a great gift. Honestly even adults would enjoy it as I read it at least 3 times before having to put it down. A joyful, educational book to treasure!"

    "★★★★★ Elizabeth Everett has taken an old and beloved nursery rhyme and changed it into a scientific observation with Twinkle, Twinkle, Daytime Star. Verses flow, pointing out what adults take for granted but are new and engaging to young readers. It’s difficult to believe all this is accomplished in so few words. This book offers all kinds of great interesting conversation starters."
