Reviews - What do our customers think?
good children's book  Mar 22, 2008
My daughter (9) loves this book. It is a version of the Cinderella story. The story is engaging and the illustrations are fine as well.

Not Appropriate for the Classroom  Jul 12, 2007
ATTENTION TEACHERS: The religious content of this book may make it inappropriate for your public school classroom. (Little Gold Star is rewarded by the Virgin Mary after she spends an afternoon caring for baby Jesus and Saint Joseph.) I would not risk angering my administration or my students' parents by including it in my classroom collection.
Beautiful Book  Oct 12, 2000
Little Gold Star offers a wonderful blend of story and illustrations from San Souci and Martinez. Little Gold Star is a Spanish American fairy tale similar to Cinderella. However, the role of fairy godmother is filled by Blessed Mary, showing the traditional Catholic influence in this culture. San Souci is always wonderful with words, but Martinez gives the story a serene beauty with his illustrations. The book has a peaceful feeling with its subdued tones. The reader knows the story will end happily and enjoys the journey to the end all the same. I highly recommend this book.
