From the creator of the New York Times bestseller Dreamers comes a beautiful story about growth, empowerment, and finding one's own voice.

 

Child, you are awake!
You are alive!
You are a bright star,
Inside our hearts.

 

Told with a combination of powerful, spare language and sumptuous and complex imagery that is typical of Yuyi Morales's work, this is the story of a fawn making her way through a border landscape teaming with flora and fauna native to the region. A gentle but empowering voice encourages her to face her fears when she comes across an obstacle in the form of an insurmountable barrier.

 

Yuyi Morales' first book since her New York Times bestseller Dreamers is a book for very young children looking for their place in a world full of uncertainty. It is a book with resonance for all children, especially those whose safety is threatened due to the immigration crisis in the US.

 

Born in Xalapa, Mexico, where she currently resides, Yuyi Morales has won the prestigious Pura Belpré Award for Illustration six times, for Just a Minute: A Trickster Tale and Counting BookLos Gatos Black on HalloweenJust in Case: A Trickster Tale and Spanish Alphabet BookNiño Wrestles the WorldViva Frida, also a Caldecott Honor Book; and Dreamers, also a New York Times Best Illustrated Book and a New York Times best seller. Her new children’s book Bright Star is a beautiful story about growth, empowerment, and finding one’s own voice.
