Five Star Review from Mamta Madhavan for Readers’ Favorite:

Bub and Guy Wish Upon a Star by Michele Lynn Seigfried is a beautiful story of friendship for kids. Bub and his friend5star-flat-web Guy are looking at the night sky and they see a shining star. They decided to make their wish, only to realize that it is not a star. They keep looking at it and they think its a jet. Bub is upset that his wish won’t come true and his friend consoles him. Guy asks him what he wished for, whether it was a car, a house or a barge. But Bub’s reply takes him by surprise. This delightful book of friendship, selflessness and unconditional love will surely find a place in the hearts of all young readers.

The book is beautifully illustrated so that the author’s concept comes across clearly. I found the friendship between Bub and Guy heartwarming and it also teaches kids about loving unconditionally. Parents and grandparents can use the book as a good bedtime story book for their kids and grand kids. It is also perfect for a read aloud session in classrooms and libraries. Children’s books with a concept and a message are sure winners because it’s is the best way to teach kids and this book does just that. It’s a perfect book for small kids and the author does a marvelous job in conveying a beautiful concept using very few words. It is a beginner’s book and the concept of friendship, selflessness and love is conveyed very effectively to readers. -Mamta Madhavan for Readers’ Favorite 

The words to the story:

I looked up in the sky
Late one night
And saw a star
Shining so bright.Wish Upon a Star-08
 
I said to my friend,
“Make a wish with me.”
“When our wish comes true,
We will be happy!”
 
“That’s not a star,”
He said to me.
“Take a closer look
And you will see.”
 
I looked a little closer
And saw he was right;
It wasn’t a star
Shining so bright.
 
“It’s a plane!  Oh my!Wish Upon a Star-22
Or maybe a jet.
My wish won’t come true
And now I’m upset!”
 
“Bub, my friend,
Please don’t feel blue.
Maybe I can help.
Is there something I can do?”
 
“What did you wish for?
Was it something large?
A car, a house,
A dog or a barge?”
 
“What I wished for,
Money can’t buy.
My wish was something
For you, my friend, Guy.”
 
“For me? What for?
Please do tell.”
“For one, I wished
For you to be well.”
 
“I wished for happiness
And warm sunny days.
I wished for fun
And flower bouquets.”
 
“I wished for hope,
Love and fresh air.
I wished for peace
And people who care.”
 
“I wished for all
These things you see,
Because you are
Important to me.”
 
 “I love you, Bub.”
 “I love you, Guy.”
