Bub and Guy Wish Upon a Star by Michele Lynn Seigfried is a beautiful story of friendship for kids. Bub and his friend Guy are looking at the night sky and they see a shining star. They decided to make their wish, only to realize that it is not a star. They keep looking at it and they think its a jet. Bub is upset that his wish won't come true and his friend consoles him. Guy asks him what he wished for, whether it was a car, a house or a barge. But Bub's reply takes him by surprise. This delightful book of friendship, selflessness and unconditional love will surely find a place in the hearts of all young readers.
The book is beautifully illustrated so that the author's concept comes across clearly. I found the friendship between Bub and Guy heartwarming and it also teaches kids about loving unconditionally. Parents and grandparents can use the book as a good bedtime story book for their kids and grand kids. It is also perfect for a read aloud session in classrooms and libraries. Children's books with a concept and a message are sure winners because it's is the best way to teach kids and this book does just that. It's a perfect book for small kids and the author does a marvelous job in conveying a beautiful concept using very few words. It is a beginner's book and the concept of friendship, selflessness and love is conveyed very effectively to readers.
