"Shimmer's Journey" / by Diane Romanowski and Aiyanna J. CrossBook
The Falling Starfish: "Shimmer's Journey" is everything a children's book should be. It is delightfully illustrated and hopeful. As a falling-now fallen star-who landed in an unexpected place, Shimmer must adapt. In doing so, she makes new friends, earns self-confidence. The young reader will learn of the importance of all of friendship and courage along with Shimmer and her aquatic friends. Follow Shimmer, the fallen star, and her friends in the Earth's ocean on their journey under the sea. This bright and engaging tale is sure to please. The story of Shimmer and her friends arose out of the combined imaginations of Diane Romanowski and her then 8-year-old granddaughter, Aiyanna J. Cross. Watching the sky one night, the two saw a falling star through the picture window of their living room. Together, they crafted the tale of Shimmer as a positive message to children of all ages. Even adults will find an endearing message. Diane Romanowski and Aiyanna J. Cross hope their readers will open their imaginations while reading The Falling Starfish, and realize that all things are possible with a little faith. Aiyanna J. Cross is also the illustrator of The Falling Starfish. She is delighted that the story of Shimmer is being published three years after creating the tale with her grandmother. -- Amazon.
