Everyone will fall in love with this The North Star, as I have. It is an inspired fable about our journey through life... and the pressures to conform that are exerted on those dreams when they run counter to the expectations of society. It is a book for those who know, or will eventually realize, that what they are doing is not what, in their heart of hearts, they want to do. It is for parents and other educators who seek to develop the unique potential they see in every child. And, with its utterly magical illustrations, it will enthrall the children too. If only every individual could find and follow his or her own star - and be encouraged to do so. How different the would would be. The North Star moves us in that direction.
