Celebrating How to Catch a Star's 10th Anniversary

This month sees Oliver Jeffers' celebrating the 10th anniversary of his debut book, How to Catch a Star and to help celebrate, this lovely book is being re released in a special hard back gift addition.

This wonderful book has captured the imagination of children all around the world. 

'Once there was a boy and the boy loved the stars very much. Every night he watched the stars from his window and wished he had one of his very own...'

The special anniversary edition includes a beautifully worded letter from the author as well as previously unpublished pictures. 

I was lucky enough to be sent a copy for myself and my kids to enjoy.
We also received a 10th anniversary poster, some lovely activity sheets, a star USB which included a special video from Olver Jeffers himself and a pack of glow in the dark stars, so we could catch our own stars.

Layla was the only one at home when the package arrived so she got the first look at all of the wonderful goodies and we had quiet time to enjoy the story together. Layla was mesmerised straight away, pointing at all the captivating illustrations.


The girls got stuck in with all of the activities that were provided, it was nice as I was able to talk to them about the story as they done each activity sheet, it was a great way to continue the fun.


And of course when Nannie came round, it made for the perfect bed time story for them all to read together. Freya, Elise and Nannie all took it in turns to read a page at a time.


And the girls even managed to catch a star of their own….
