Summary

The Star Child, a tiny flame of vapor, invisible and timeless, watches the Earth from far, far away. He marvels at the blue swirls of the ocean and the green land, a bright spot turning through the darkness of space. He wants to go to this wondrous place, but he ponders: What will that life be like?

"You will be plunged into Earth's river of time," his elders tell the Star Child.

"There will be so much for you to learn and so much for you to feel—pleasure and fear, joy and disappointment, sadness and wonder."

Through spare, artful text and intricate illustrations, Claire A. Nivola celebrates the cycle of life.
