Draw Me a Star

Draw Me a Star

by Eric Carle
Carle says this extraordinary book came from a memory and a dream. The memory was of his German grandmother showing him how to draw a simple star. In the dream, a bright shooting star picked him up and carried him across the night sky. The memory was the beginning of the story, and the dream was the end. The middle, he writes, was easy! Full-color illustrations throughout.
