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 friend 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. 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! 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.”
