    Twenty Twinkling Stars (www.twentytwinklingstars.org)
    ————–
    Twenty Twinkling Stars is a whimsical rhyming picture book for young children, ages 3-7. The book celebrates the interests and passions of the twenty Sandy Hook first graders we lost on December 14, 2012 (including soccer , the Beatles, painting, reading books and tacos).

    Told in upbeat simple rhyme, Twinkling Stars relates a bevy of young children’s interests and feelings to a certain number of stars in the sky. The colorfully illustrated stars—from one star to twenty, are a symbolic tribute to the twenty children –sparkling above and within us.
    The book celebrates the universal wonder and spirit of all children everywhere.

    Profits from the sale of the book will be donated to our partner, the National Students Against Violence Everywhere. National SAVE is a youth violence prevention organization.

    Twenty Twinkling Stars is written for children ages 3-7. Twenty pages/verses and illustrations. Includes references to the 20 children’s interests and passions and a tribute to the beloved principal and six teachers.

    National SAVE endorsement:

I will discuss this effort with the other Board members at our upcoming meeting, with the goal of further developing enthusiasm for the book and our emerging partnership. I would also be happy to speak with her or anyone else from the Twenty Twinkling Stars team.”
