Book Review and Giveaway: Henry’s Big Star Adventure

When Scott Schumaker asked me to review his recently released children’s book, Henry’s Big Star Adventure, I did not hesitate to say yes. Although it’s a mid-grade book (for kids ages 6-10), I knew it would be fun to read to Sweet Pea, my 3.5 year old, who has been listening to Dan read financial and tech blogs since before she could talk. (Recently, she announced, “I like listening to girl music, boy music, and podcasts!” (Though I have made some questionable parenting decisions in the past and probably will continue to do so in the future, I can assure you we’ve never listened to Serial together.)


Henry’s Big Star Adventure did not disappoint. This book had everything- adventure, suspense, and gorgeous, playful illustrations. As we followed Henry on his journey through the galaxy to retrieve his lost stars, we held our breath to see how he would manage the perils that met him at every turn. Despite his fear of the seemingly insurmountable challenges he faced, he took every opportunity to leap through the unknown to continue his quest for the lost stars.

Through Henry and his friends, we learn about the importance of strength, courage, friendship, and forgiveness- lessons that all readers, young and old, will appreciate.

I am thrilled to give away a copy of Henry’s Big Star Adventure to one lucky winner. To win, just leave a comment, telling me one of your favorite children’s books before midnight (Mountain Standard Time) Sunday December 20th.

Wondering how to silence that voice telling you you're not good enough,
not smart enough, that you're a fraud?
