Goodnight Star, Whoever You Are (Mom’s Choice Award Winner)

Goodnight Star, Whoever You AreOne fateful night, a child notices a magnificent star that looks like it’s following him during a car ride home from the beach. When he asks his mom about it, she gives him a textbook explanation at first and then makes him think twice. Heartfelt and reassuring, Goodnight Star, Whoever You Are helps kids cope with grief, loss, and longing in an enchanting way, sparking meaningful conversations about the everlasting power of love. With an imaginative point of view, kids will discover that the connection they share with the person or pet who died transcends the space between them. Children can reflect on their unbreakable bond with an “I Remember” page at the end of this delightfully illustrated picture book, providing comfort during trying times.


About the Author

Jodi Meltzer is a multi-award-winning author who recently moved to Tampa from her native Boston in search of more sunshine, literally and figuratively. She has also written extensively about grief for various publications, including HuffPost, The Mighty, Scary Mommy, and Thrive Global. Before motherhood, she was an accomplished anchor/ reporter who covered everyone from Hillary Clinton to The Goo Goo Dolls.

A Beautiful reminder That Love Never Dies

Goodnight Star, Whoever You Are is a delight. While driving home after spending a wonderful day at the beach with his mom a young boy senses he is being followed by a star in the sky. Disturbed, he asks his mom why the star is following him. He is surprised when his usually down to Earth mom tells him that she disagrees with the scientific explanation and prefers to think that the star that follows us is one of our passed loved ones watching over us.

This is a wonderful book that would be a welcome addition to any family library. It would be especially helpful for any child, or adult who is struggling to cope with the loss of a family member, friend, or favorite pet. The illustrations are perfect and feel like a warm hug.



All in all, it’s an entertaining and fun read. We can’t wait to read more from Jodi Meltzer.
