Summary, etc.:
"When Madeleine L'Engle was very small, she marvelled at the stars. They guided her throughout her life, making her feel part of a big and exciting world, even when she felt alone. They made her want to ask big questions-Why are we here? What is my place in the universe?-and let her imagination take flight. Books, too, were like stars-asking questions and proposing answers. Books kept Madeleine company, and soon, she began to write and share her own. But would other people see the wonder she found in the world? Written by Madeleine's granddaughter Charlotte Jones Voiklis and bestselling picture book author Jennifer Adams, A Book, Too, Can Be a Star follows the life of one of the world's greatest creators-and gives children encouragement to lead a creative, inquisitive life"-- Provided by publisher.
