Forever Star

Forever Star

Summary

A beautiful, heartfelt adventure, perfect for celebrating all kinds of family and the love that brings them together.

This is the dark and starless sky, where just past the moon a planet drifts by.
And this is the planet that's full to the brim, with friendly and caring space people called . . . TIM!

Meet Tim and Tim - a couple who long for a family and set off on a quest to find their very own star child. This joyful, read-aloud adventure is a comforting, soothing read that's ideal just before bedtime. It's also a helpful jumping off point for early conversations about the experiences of LGBTQ+ families for the youngest readers.

From the author of My Daddies and the illustrator of The Perfect Hug and The Biggest Kiss
