How the Stars Came to Be - Children's Book by Poonam Mistry ✨
Have you ever wondered how the stars came to be?
The Fisherman's Daughter loved to dance in the Sunlight, and bathe in the glow of the Moon, but when the moon would disappear for a few nights each month, she would worry about her father and how he would find his way home from sea in the deep darkness. When the sun finds her sobbing one night, he takes one of his rays and smashes it onto the ground, creating the stars and giving the girl the task of putting them into the dark night sky.
This beautifully illustrated story gives us a new folk tale, and a new way to look up at the night sky.
About the Author:
Poonam Mistry is a freelance illustrator living in the UK. Her style incorporates her love of nature and her Indian roots and explores the relationships between pattern, shapes and colour. She loves folklore tales and stories of Hindu Gods and Goddesses and these have been a rich source of inspiration in a number of her illustrations. Poonam’s work is drawn by hand with black ink before she uses computer software to add colour and adjust the composition of her illustrations.
Books are one of our go-to gift ideas! There’s something special about a gifting a beautiful hardcover book with a handwritten note inside the cover. Or, if you are shopping for your own little one, reading is a wonderful way to spend time together.
We always search to find books that help celebrate the wonder of our world, inspire imagination and/or mindfulness; books that make us learn, feel, and expand our views. And this has inspired our children's book collection here at Polly & Co.
