How to Catch a Star by Oliver Jeffers

To celebrate World Space Week, we're reading a sweet book about a boy who loves stars. He decides he wants to catch one, which turns out to be an impossible task (even with his paper rocket ship), and leads to a series of disappointments. In the end, the boy is on the beach when he comes across a sea star, and it feels like magic. It's a bedtime book at our house – teaching that while sometimes things don't turn out like you planned, they can be pretty awesome anyway.
