What's The North Star About

Publisher Summary

Ideal for graduates! A gorgeous new edition of the universal fable that has inspired seekers of all ages to follow their heart’s desire.

Ask yourself where it is you want to go. . . .

It is often said that life is a journey, and it’s true. But sometimes it’s hard to know which path to follow, when signs point in so many directions. In this beautifully illustrated book, Peter H. Reynolds once again encourages readers to observe, to wonder, and to consider diverging from the well-worn path—to pursue their dreams. Originally published ten years ago, The North Star has had a profound effect on its many readers. This edition, featuring all-new art, celebrates the book’s own decade-long voyage connecting people around the world. It has inspired classroom activities, a musical, and thousands more thoughtful journeys.

The North Star tackles the deep yet important topic of our personal life journeys. It addresses concepts like the voices and messages that influence us, how we’ll treat others, and being confident in what our own goals are. It does all of this in a remarkably simple story that is meaningful to adults but still understandable to young readers. The simple illustrations bring some simplicity to the deeper ideas presented by the story.
