Nana Star and Moon Man Review and Giveaway!

nana-star-logo

I recently was given the opportunity to review many of the products associated with Nana Star an award winning series of children books.  These books were written by two sisters, Elizabeth and Elena Sills  and the books were illustrated by their mother Linda Saker. I love when families works together in bringing together something that promotes positive virtues and character-building points and traits that are important for children.

The first book book, “Nana Star” tells the story of Nana Star whom is a little girl venturing out to bring a lost baby star back home.  I find the stories simple enough for young children to understand on their own but challenging enough as well to bring questions to the table.

The second book ” Nana Star and the Moon man” is the next in the series.  It picks up where the last book left off.  Nana is trying to get the little star back home but finds herself lost in the dark and this where the moon man comes in.  He encourages her to know he is there to guide and watch her along the way even if she can’t see him.

Each of the books comes with a companion CD witch features sing along songs along with the full story so your kids can listen anytime they want. The  stories that they’ve brought to life are quite simple keeping them geared toward 3-7 year olds.

I wanted to also mention that each book, includes a mistake in the text for young readers to find. When children send Nana Star a note correcting the mistake, they become special members of her Little Twinkles Club. Each member receives an autographed photo of the real Nana Star with a personalized message, as well as a certificate of membership.

I love the plush toys that came along with my books as they are incredibly lovable and hugable.  My daughter loves dragging the Moon man toy around the house with her throughout the day and she dances when I push the star on his stomach and music begins to play. It’s too cute.  The Nana Star rag doll is a wonderful companion for young girls. She’s pose able and soft so she can even become a sleeping companion for your child or even the next guest at her tea parties.

I’m all for companies that give back to the community and Nana Star does just that by giving  a portion of all book and merchandise sales directly to the Nana Star Foundation, which is dedicated to raising funds for terminally ill children and raising awareness of the crippling problems facing children that attend under-resourced, inner-city schools. The Nana Star books are distributed to hospitals and inner-city schools throughout the United States.

Nana Star products can be purchased from NanaStar.com and the books can also be found on Amazon.
