I like Stars by Margaret Wise Brown
I am a Star by Jean Marzollo

Craft: Star Picture

The kids used ‘star paint’ and glow in the dark paint to create a starry night picture on blue construction paper. The ‘star paint’ is an equal parts mixture of flour, salt and water. When this dries it leaves a sparkly appearance. We used star stamps with the glow in the dark paint. Test them by turning off the lights briefly.
