I love that my kids love reading so much.  There is something amazing about being able to sit and read a book while using your imagination to become part of the story.  My 11 year old daughter has loved the Star Darlings series and I love that she is learning so many great lessons while reading the series.  Earlier this year, by daughter received the Star Darlings books 1-5 and she immediately started to read them.  She was bummed when she finished book five because she was eager to keep reading the series.  She was so excited to finally receive books 6-9 in the mail so she could continue the series.

About Star Darlings

“Just like real girls, each Star Darling has her own wish that she pursues with full force and determination—and the help of her friends. These shared journeys and experiences provide exceptionally positive examples to inspire tweens to follow their dreams.”  I love this so much about the series.  It is so important to me that my daughter recognizes that she can follow her dream.  I love that Star Darlings encourages this while giving them examples and experiences that teach her how to dream.

CollectionOne

If you are new to the series you can find the Star Darlings Collection Volume #1 in a brand new bind up book that includes the first three books in the Star Darlings series. I recommend checking out these final 4 books in the series – books #6-9 because they are all really fun.  I know they say that we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but seriously, aren’t these covers adorable!  I’ve read some of the books and the stories are just as cute as the covers!  🙂

About Star Darlings Book 6-9

CASSIE COMES THROUGH

“Starf! The day Cassie has been dreading since she first arrived at Starling Academy is here. She has been chosen to make the journey to Wishworld for the next Wish Mission. Lady Stella, the headmistress, assures her she’s going to do a starmendous job.

Cassie is so sensitive and perceptive she’ll be a natural! But her mission is even harder than she feared. Everything just seems all wrong. And there’s no help in sight. Could Cassie be the first Star Darling who simply can’t make her Wisher’s wish come true?

PIPER’S PERFECT DREAM

Mysterious things continue to happen on Starland every day as the girls wait to see who will go on the next Wish Mission. Piper has a dream that she will be the one and indeed she is. Piper has a lot to learn when she finds herself working at a diner.

Confident that she’s identified her Wisher’s wish, Piper enjoys her time on Wishworld. But as her Countdown Clock ticks away can she dismiss her earlier assumptions and discover the true wish?

ASTRA’S MIXED-UP MISSIONS

Life on Starland is anything but normal these days. The Star Darlings continue to experience mysterious phenomena while trying to focus on their studies and maintain their cover.

Stat athlete Astra is chosen for the next Wish Mission. Her overconfident nature leads her to quick conclusions about her Wisher’s true wish. Can Astra put aside her own interests and assumptions and help Emma before time runs out?

TESSA’S LOST & FOUND

As more and more disturbing things happen on Starland, the Star Darlings try to unravel clues to what’s going on. One theory is that Lady Stella herself is behind all the trouble.

Tessa is selected to travel to Wishworld where she finds herself in a spot that’s perfect for her—an animal shelter. When a terrible storm hits, Tessa and her Wisher, Lizzie, must work together to take care of the helpless animals in the shelter, while Tessa tries to discover Lizzie-s real wish and help grant it before time runs out.”

Ever since my daughter was little she would wish on a star.  It was always so cute to me because she would make everyone stop taking so she could say the poem, “Star Light, star bright, first star I see tonight.  I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight.”  She would then close her eyes and make a wish.  I never knew what her wishes were, I just knew that she was always happy and content after making a wish.  When I think of little girls and wishes and dreams I think of the stars.  The stars are glittery and bright and encourage dreaming.  Since stars look so sparkly, my daughters and I created a Star Darlings inspired craft that we are excited to share with you.  These Wish Upon Your Star Glitter Clothespins are perfect for holding your child’s folded up wishes.

Wish Upon Your Star Glitter Clothespins

 PaintedClothesPins

  1.  Paint your Clothespins with different bright colors.  Each of my girls have their favorite colors so they painted their personal clothespins with their favorite paints.glitteredclothespin

2.  After the paint is dry, add glue on one side of the clothespin and dip in Glitter.  You can use the same glitter as your paint or you can mix and match.
