Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star (Extended Nursery Rhymes)

Illustrated by Carolina Farias

The classic nursery rhyme . . . now the beginning of a hilarious rhyming adventure for toddlers!

Everyone loves and remembers nursery rhymes from their childhood. Each book in this series begins with a classic nursery rhyme, and then expands on it with lots of silly fun. 

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star is one of the most recognizable and beloved nursery rhymes of all time. And while there are countless versions available in book form, this magical edition turns the rhyme into an unforgettable story young children will come back to again and again. 

When four kittens wish to be closer to Twinkle, they devise different contraptions to launch them up, up, up in the sky! When their ideas don’t work, the kittens and Twinkle learn a valuable lesson about what it means to be a friend. At once hilarious and endearing, this book will give children the giggles as they read and re-read this new classic.
