Star’s Purpose

A Military Mission

Before Alice’s dad deploys, he tells her a story about a special star. Star and her friends twinkled brightly at night, but they wanted to make a difference all the time. Find out what happens when curious stars fall from the sky and land on service members!

A comforting story, especially for military children, to create connections when apart from a loved one. Stars are everywhere!

Includes values from each US military service branch.

Available in Spanish as El propósito de Estrella: Una misión militar (July 23, 2024).
