Little Star That Could

A story about finding the place where you belong.

“The Little Star That Could” is a story about Little Star, an average yellow star in search for planets of his own to protect and warm.

Along the way, he meets other stars, learns what makes each star special, and discovers that stars combine to form star clusters and galaxies. Eventually, Little Star finds his planets. Each planet is introduced to your audiences with basic information about our Solar System.

“The Little Star That Could” was originally created by the Saint Louis Science Center and reproduced by Audio Visual Imagineering and Brevard Community College.
