The Stars Will Still Shine
by Cynthia Rylant
No current Talk conversations about this book.
Maybe I'm just overwhelmed by Rylant's fantasies of a perfectly wholesome world, but I just don't think this is one of her most valuable works. ( )
This is a lyrical, peaceful book reminding the reader that despite the difficulties we may face, life continues, and nature holds the bounty of goodness.
This simple poem was okay, though not my favorite work by Cynthia Rylant. It works as a lullaby I suppose.
I loved the text herein and all that's keeping this one from a fifth star is the illustrations. They didn't quite work for me. I liked all of them save the ones with people in, those were somehow jarring to me. The text, however, made even this old crank feel a little hopeful about the year that is to come. Peaches! Ice cream! Stars! Birds! Yes!
This is a story about things that happen all the time in nature, the stars shining, the flowers blooming and the sun shining.
