Caleb is a bit afraid of the dark. He really doesn't like to be left alone downstairs, either. I enjoyed giving him the Moonman from the new series of Nana Star! I really like the Moonman, because he is super soft and cuddly. His face lights up (like the moon) and he plays a great little tune. It is a very appealing tune, too. The book that accompanies the Moonman is about Nana Star (the little girl in the blue dress) bringing the star to it's home. The darkness comes, and Nana Star is scared. The Moonman comes out, and helps Nana Star see that he helps light up the night with his light.
There are two plush dolls (Nana Star and Moonman) and a book that coordinates with each one. Each Nana Star book includes an accompanying audio CD with the storybook and a sing-along song. To make the book a little more interactive, the authors have included a spelling mistake in each book and encourage readers to find it and send them a postcard with the correction. Children are then eligible to receive an 8x10 photo of the Nana Star costumed character and become an honorary member of the Nana Star Little Twinkles Club. The Club is expanded on its website, www.NanaStar.com, where language arts activities for emerging readers are offered.
Elizabeth Owens is the creator of Nana Star, and her grandson, Vance originally inspired her. Linda Saker, Owens's daughter, is the series illustrator; her granddaughters, Elizabeth Sills and Elena Patrice, write and publish the Nana Star stories; and her five great-grandchildren have contributed inspiration to this special undertaking.
