Henry's Stars by David Elliot

Young children are very subjective and it is very hard to get them to see other people's perspective, heck, it can be hard for some of us adults too!

Henry's Stars is one of two books in which he stars (pun!) in. Henry's Map is the first.

Henry is a pig and one night he stares into the night sky and spots a constellation that looks like a pig. Excitedly he runs to his friends and tells them all about his 'Great Pig' in the sky. However, his friends don't agree and tell him they see something more akin to themselves.

This book could be a great way to help introduce children about constellations and how the Greeks chose to name the constellations we observe today. It can also be a great way to get children talking about why the different animals saw what they saw.

Henry's Stars has a funny ending as well and can lead to a lot more conversation afterwards!
