‘Why are some stars so big and other ones so small?’ Fox asks.
‘Maybe stars are growing,’ Dog answers. ‘When you look at a star and think of something nice, it grows.’
Fox and Dog spend an evening gazing at stars and realize that when they think nice thoughts, the stars grow bigger. They soon discover that the magical power of nice thoughts can be shared with everyone.

A warm-hearted story about giving compliments and getting them, and about the magical power of nice thoughts. For daydreamers ages 5 and up.

Daniëlle Schothorst likes to tell stories with just a few words. Her writing and illustrations are inspired by the world around her: her three sons; her dog, Muppy; and her experiences as a child. Daniëlle lives in Steenwijk, the Netherlands, where besides writing and drawing for different media (including the Dutch version of Sesame Street), she gives lectures and workshops in schools and libraries. In her spare time, she loves to make stone sculptures.

"“The Brightest Star” by Danielle Schothorst is such a sweet book with darling illustrations about the importance of giving compliments and sharing positive thoughts. Fox and Dog talk about the stars and Dog notices how much more brightly they shine when speaking of something positive. A heartwarming story for young readers ages 5 and up emphasizing kindness toward others and positive thinking. 5/5" -Literary Soirée
"Lovely illustrations! Sweet characters....Very positive, uplifting message. Promotes friendship, looking for the good in everything and always thinking positive thoughts.." -SUE M, bookseller
"This book is special. It is teaching the lost art of giving a compliment. It draws the parallel between your heart growing when someone compliments you to stars getting brighter when you say nice things about them. This book could be used as a good teaching aide in the classroom, especially with young children. The illustrations of the animals are adorable as well. They add a lot to the story. Please share this book with the children in your life." -Beth Grobmyer, educator
