Have you ever wished for a star of your very own? The young boy in How to Catch a Star wishes he had a star all his own and sets out to catch one. The story, by Oliver Jeffers, is super cute and can inspire lots of learning opportunities such as a science-related study of stars, star- or wish-themed writing activities, an investigation of character/personality traits, a discussion about goals, and much more! And yes, the book is part of this month’s giveaway.
What else is included in this month’s First Friday Giveaway? Let’s see. There’s a plush spaceship that is begging to be placed in a writing center or reading corner, a pack of smiley star stickers, a bag of Starburst candies, and a pack of 12 colorful flair pens.
To enter for a chance to win this star-studded prize pack, leave your answer to the following question in the comment section of this blog before midnight April 15, 2019.

PS: Of course I also wish to lose weight, own a chocolate factory, and live at the beach! :+)
