This is a fantastic story which has helped me reassure my 3 year old daughter that I'll always love her after very suddenly & tragically losing her Daddy. The story is about a grumpy little fox looking for reassurance from his Mummy that she will always love him no matter how grumpy he is.
I was looking for a reassuring story & this touches on does love wear out or end even when we're gone. To which his Mummy assures him that love is like star light & even when we're not here anymore it still goes on this is very fitting for our situation after telling her that Daddy is a star now.
Definately recommend to anyone in a similar situation as I struggled to find bereavement story's to help me explain what was going on for my 3 year old though be reassured this is not a sad story & is extremely well written. No Matter What

Having already bought this 5-star book for my daughter (who adores it) I bought this one for a friend thinking the board format would be a good idea. But the text is different! The whole part that addresses death in a very simple, clear manner has been replaced by some syrupy watered down text that avoids the subject completely. No mention of this in the introduction - if I buy an abridged version, I want to know about it in advance.

I had to track this book down after reading the line 'Love like starlight never dies'in a favourite quote display in my primary school. The book is wonderful and the message that love is unconditional 'no matter what'. I sobbed through it when i first read it (alone)and then again the first few times i read it to my own children and i still can't read it to a class of children yet without getting choked. One of those books you need to have about and makes you appreciate your children even when they drive you mad!! Well recommended, but be prepared for the subject of death and dying to be raised.

I never get tired of reading this to my daughter (4yrs old) and she never tires of listening to it. Even my 9yr old loves to hear it.
When you've had one of those days when your child isn't being at their best and you've had to tell them off, this is the perfect story to read at bedtime, letting them know that no matter what, you'll always love them.
The book was given as a gift about 2 years ago and I still say thank you to my cousin for it.

Glorious illustrations, good rhyming text and a lovely story about the strength of a parent's love for his/her child. Large tells grumpy Small that s/he will always love them regardless, even if they turn into a crocodile or any other unappealing creature (though in Gliori's pictures they still look pretty special). Then Small asks whether love wears out and Large says that love's like the light of the stars - it's a long way away but goes on and on. At 3 my children think it is funny that a mother would love a bear or a bug - at four the eldest is understanding the message. This is cleverer than Guess how much I love you and equally appealing.

My daughter had the board book copy of this in her book collection for years & always enjoyed it. When I was diagnosed with terminal cancer I was surprised to find this book in among the suggested titles for helping children come to terms with loss. It was then I discovered the hard back/paper page edition. I have 'lost' the board book & put this new copy away for when the time comes because it beautifully describes how love goes on forever - like the stars - even after we are dead. That is how I want my girls to think of me when I'm gone - with them & loving them forever.

The slightly grumpy "small" in this story wants his/her mum to confirm that yes, his/her mum really loves him/her. S/he suggests a series of ever more imaginative scenarios to test the mum and the mum rises to the challenge each time. It's beautifully illustrated and my daughter (the middle one) just loves hearing it again and again, especially when she's worrying about sibling rivalry and her place in our affections. One of the few I really love reading to her again and again.

A lovely beautiful book, as are all of Debi Gliori's children's books. My children love to read this book and I think it gives an important message about the strength of love However, I had the original copy of this which was, I believe, a great story for children to explain about the death of a loved one. I gave my copy to a friend after a family member of theirs passed away and this replacement didn't carry quite the same message. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone as it is a lovely book but if you have been told that this is a great book for little ones who have lost a loved on please find the 'love,like starlight,never dies' version.

Lovely book, that is fun to read aloud due to the powerful language. Lovely message, grumpy or grizzly, I still love you. Without being sickly sweet at all! Like it as much as 'Where the wild things are'. Good for older ones too, but great to have it as a board book with thick pages to turn easily.
