A while back I received two books in the Nana Star series. I have already reviewed the first book simply titled Nana Star. The story centers around a young girl who finds a lost baby star and decides to help him find his way home. That story also introduces us to Nana Star and the virtue of Kindness. It is through Nana Star’s kindness that she befriends the little star and her compassion that makes her decides to help.
In the next story Nana Star and the Moonman we see that Nana Star is making her way to some place where she can return the Star to the heavens. Along the way the day turns to night and Nana Star and the little star become scared, that is until the Moonman shines his light down upon the two travellers and offers his guidance so that they can continue on their journey.
The Moonman instructs Nana Star that there is a small boat that she can use to sail across the water to the mountain and there another will help Nana in her journey.
Don’t forget that Nana Star is much more than a book with a nice message. Nana Star is a family collaboration. There are four generations working on the book and the Nana Star Foundation. The Nana Star Foundation is dedicated to helping make life easier for inner city school. It is also dedicated to terminally ill children. A portion of all sales of Nana Star books and merchandise goes to fund the foundation.
Sadly the creator of Nana Star, Elizabeth Owens passed away this year. Her spirit and characters and family and foundation live on however.
