Laura's Star and the Search for Santa
by Klaus Baumgart
Age Range: 6-8
Laura is looking forward to going away for Christmas, but her younger brother Tommy, is worried that Santa won’t be able to find them in their holiday cottage. Laura doesn’t know how to reassure him, but then her special friend, the star, suggests a marvellous idea – instead of waiting for Santa to find them, they should go and look for Santa!
This is a magical Christmas story from the best-selling, award-winning German author and illustrator Klaus Baumgart. The ‘Laura’s Star’ series has been broadcast on TV throughout Europe, including the UK and the first title Laura’s Star has been made into a film.
The sparkly star is always there to guide Laura and light up the watercolour illustrations. This First Reader series does not have as much artwork as the picture books in the ‘Laura’ series – only six full-page illustrations, but it does have many vignettes which are still just as attractive.
Others titles in the series are: Picture Books – Laura’s Star, Laura’s Christmas Star and Laura’s Secret. First Reader series – Laura’s Star and the New Teacher and Laura’s Star and the Sleepover. There is also a Laura’s Star Sticker Activity Book.
