Welcome the beauty of creation into your child's life with Who Made the Stars? Little Bear's Bedtime Question.
Why We Love This Children's Book
This children's picture book, Who Made the Stars? Little Bear's Bedtime Question, is the perfect way to end your little one's day!
Written by Leslie Olmo, this cute and comforting story follows a small bear who delays bedtime with questions (and more questions and more questions!) about the beauty of creation.
The repeating phrase "beautifully and wonderfully made," is based on a simple phrase from Psalm 139:14 (HCSB), "I will praise you because I am remarkably and wonderfully made."
While the book reinforces a simple Christian message, the message is appropriate for all children.
We think you will love it! Please check out a few of these illustrated pages below.
As Big Bear answers Little Bear's questions in a rhythmic and repetitive style, children are encouraged to join in and learn a timeless message about how each of us is "beautifully and wonderfully" made!
This book is a perfect baby shower gift for new moms. It also makes a great birthday gift for little kiddos. These books have been enjoyed in classrooms, summer camps, and at many more fun events and activities.
Little Bear has SOOOO many questions to ask! You'll have fun finding out what's on his mind! Plus, you'll notice he's pretty good at pushing bedtime out a little further and a little further! But in the end, the stars are able to softly twinkle Little Bear to sleep!
This book is great for kids who speak Spanish, but what a great book to share with your kids in two languages- perfect for children's immersion programs. To read and learn more about this book in Spanish, visit www.leslieolmo.com.
Learn More From The Author's Official Bio
Leslie Olmo is a loving children’s book author with two best-selling children’s books under her belt!
Leslie lives with her husband and two daughters in Wake Forest, North Carolina.
In addition to her family and friends, she loves Hatteras Island, peanut butter fudge, the Buckeyes, knitting, and the family dog!
After many years in the corporate world wearing business attire 24/7, Leslie does not usually go anywhere that requires more than shorts, t-shirts, a ponytail, and flip flops!
Leslie's experience raising two wonderful girls into young adulthood has been an inspiration for her work.
As a parent, she recognizes that children are often the spark that motivates us to think through our values and priorities so that we can live out a meaningful life.
Today's world is so complicated! While we cannot combat all of life's troubles, Leslie believes we can make an effort to share consistent and encouraging messages that will resonate for a lifetime.
Leslie has found that the best lessons are those that break larger concepts into short, simple, and memorable messages.
The best messages make us feel good about ourselves and the world around us. Simple core-value messages make us better decision-makers when it's time to take action in this high-pressure world of changing priorities.
Leslie finds this to be true for both children and adults and strives to reinforce these concepts in all her writings.
What does the future hold? An Empty Nest? Oh, no! She is in denial! With one daughter starting college and one just graduated, she will still have lots of "mom" stuff to do.

Reading Is So Important
The significance of these books goes beyond just providing entertainment.
Reading to young children is crucial in instilling a love of reading early on and inspiring imagination.
Studies have shown that children who are read to at a young age develop better language skills, social skills, and cognitive abilities.
Picture books, like those featuring bears, can be especially helpful in introducing a young girl or a little boy to the joys of reading.
Picture books featuring bears can be found just about everywhere making them a readily accessible investment in your child's love of reading.
Owning a collection of bear books can provide hours of fun and serve as a treasured childhood memory.
These stories provide imaginative play and valuable life lessons, all while being a fun activity and bonding time for parents and children alike.
So, the next time you're at the bookstore or poking around online, be sure to pick up some bear books and let your child discover the joys of reading with their new bear friends!
