Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stellaluna Loved everything about this book. I loved the story, the beautiful illustrations and the factual information offered at the end. It's interesting to see how Stella fares trying to mimic a species other than her own. A great story for children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best ever children's book I adored this book, and so did my two grandaughters. The story is sweet, well written, just long enough to keep a little one's interest. The art is amazing. This is a book to keep for generations.
