This nonfiction picture book is perfect for sharing at home or in the classroom, as it addresses a basic question from children 3 to 6: What is dust? An ALA Notable Book illustrated by best-selling artist Ann Jonas, Stars Beneath Your Bed answers that question with clear, elegant informational text by acclaimed author April Pulley Sayre.

Dust can be "a crumbling leaf, the eyelash of a seal, the scales of a snake, the smoke of burning toast, ash from an erupting volcano." And it can connect us across space and time--dust under your bed might have made King Tut sneeze or muddied a dinosaur. Bonus text explains the scientific relationship between dust and the color of a sunset.

Stars Beneath Your Bed is a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, and the publication wrote, in a starred review, "This book is ideal for classroom use, and is both straightforward enough for preschoolers and fascinating enough to capture the interest of older elementary students."
