Author Notes

Margaret Wise Brown was born on May 10, 1910 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York, to Robert Brown, a Vice President at American Manufacturing Company and Maud Brown, a housewife. She attended school in Lausanne, Switzerland for three years, before attending Dana Hall in Wellesley, Massachusetts for two years. In 1928, she began taking classes at Hollis College in Virginia.

In 1935, Brown began working at the Bank Street Cooperative School for student teachers. Two years later, her writing career took off with the publication of "When the Wind Blows." Over the course of fourteen years, Brown wrote over one hundred picture books for children. Some of her best known titles include Goodnight Moon, Big Red Barn and Runaway Bunny.

Margaret Wise Brown died on November 13, 1952 of an embolism following an operation in Nice, France.

Booklist Review

Gr. 1. "I like stars. / Far stars. / Quiet stars. / Bright stars. / Light stars." Brown's simple poem gets new playful illustrations in this cheerful paperback in the Road to Reading, Mile 1, series. On the first page, the picture of the gray rabbit in bed staring at the stars through the window will remind many children of Brown's beloved classic Goodnight Moon (1947), and that makes a nice connection to the pleasure of reading. This rabbit moves outside and joins a frog, a bird, and a mouse in play and talk about stars. The simple collage pictures give clues to the words, including the names of colors, the ideas of near and far, and, as Leonard Marcus says in his afterword, to the dreamy thought that one star is shining for you.
