A propos de l'auteur

Marion Dane Bauer was born in Oglesby, Illinois. She attended community college first, in her home town, and then went to the University of Missouri when she was a junior to study journalism. She quickly realized that journalism was not for her and changed her focus to the humanities and a degree afficher plus in English literature. She switched one last time to focus on teaching english, which she did when she graduated college. After her children were born, Bauer decided to try her hand at writing. She started out with a children's picture book, but discovered that youg adult novels were more to her taste. After making a career out of writing, Bauer became the first Faculty Chair at Vermont College for the only Master of Fine Arts in Writing program devoted exclusively to writing for children and young adults. Bauer is the author of more than forty books for young people. She has won many awards, including a Jane Addams Peace Association Award for her novel Rain of Fire and an American Library Association Newbery Honor Award for On My Honor and the Kerlan Award from the University of Minnesota for the body of her work. Her picture book My Mother is Mine was a New York Times bestseller. (Bowker Author Biography) afficher moins

Saddest book I've ever read. Very hard to read as the mother of boys, but once I started, I had to finish. Very well written. Would be great book to open discussion on making good decisions. Heart breaking.

Even though this was a real quick read, I love how the ending tells us all that we are born from a dying star and that we are all connected with each other in some form or another. It’s so sweet and it made me feel better.

A readers series about Natural places in America: one sentence facts about the length, animals, and number of hikers are set out to inform the reader about the Appalachian Trail. The illustrations include some people of color. Watercolor illustrations accompany the explanation of the Appalachian Trail.
Since it is a level one reader, the typeface is large, and there are short sections of text on each or every other page. More difficult words are spelled out phonetically. The last page includes interesting facts about the trail for an advanced reader. This series could entice those interested in the natural beauty of America in 2nd grade.

Alright. I have mixed feelings on this book.

I loved the illustrations. They are impactful and vibrant--full of life and vitality. They look like paint splotches that create the pictures mentioned in the text. Or they look like milk paint (look it up. It's a fun science experiment!) I also love that there are "hard" words, hard adverbs, in the book. Increasing a child's vocabulary is vital!

But why then did I give it a 3 star review? For me, it's because I don't believe in the Big Bang....and that's what this is about. =/ Or it has that premise. I can appreciate the book for all the beauty in it and I can see where most will LOVE this. But sometimes, on topics of my worldview, I can struggle. I think there are a lot of redeeming qualities in "The Stuff of Stars" that makes this book worth reading. But it isn't one I must add to my bookshelf at home.… (plus d'informations)
