The fruit of the spirit 'Shining with Light' series has been written for young children (ages 3+) in a way that captures a child's sense of wonder and learning, encapsulated in fun rhyme and storytelling. The stories develop life skills such as friendship and social skills that children can relate to and put into practice in their everyday lives and experiences. In this series our helper-light is depicted through a star on the chest of our friend Stellar Bear. 'Stellar' means constellation or star. Stars shine with light and are unique just as we are unique. When we turn on our light our true qualities can shine through. The star reflects the emotions of Stellar, and whispers trusting and true solutions when things go wrong. The star is our companion, our problem solver, our helper to make things right.
