The Sleepy Star Goes to Heaven

"This is exactly what I have felt in my heart!"

Written with the same rhyming verse and whimsical illustrations as the award-winning children’s bedtime book The Sleepy Star; The Sleepy Star Goes to Heaven tackles the difficult subject of loss in a comforting and uplifting way for children and adults alike. Void of any specific religious affiliation, The Sleepy Star Goes to Heaven suggests an afterlife exists in a magical place that is “Filled with love and joy, and the gift of God’s grace.” The readers follow a brilliant little star named “Tom” who takes The Sleepy Star on an incredible dream journey. Tom’s ability to connect and be with his family wherever they go, resonates with readers who also carry their loved ones in their hearts and minds daily.
