It is the time and place of August Skies as parent and child lie together looking up into the night sky. High above, Little Star and Big Star are also looking out into the galaxy together. The time has come for Little Star to shoot across the sky to a new place, creating its own beautiful light. Little Star and Big Star feel excited, anticipating this new beginning, but there is also worry. Will Little Star’s doubts prevent its beautiful light from shining? Will Little Star be able to leave Big Star and make the leap, or will fear of the unknown and the chance of failure be too great?
This inspiring tale speaks to the Big Star and Little Star in all of us. It reminds us that when it is time to journey to unfamiliar places, we must trust ourselves, find courage to shoot forward, and shine on.
