One day, a star child landed in the sea of mum’s belly. It couldn’t do a lot. Only laughing, dancing and swimming. When you put your ear on mum’s belly, you could hear it. The swimming made the child tired, so it decided to build a boat. It was a pretty boat, but not very big. With a mast and a sail. When you put your hand on mum’s belly, you could feel it. But then a storm came up. The boat split and the child fell in the sea. It grabbed the sail and flew away into the sky. If you look carefully you can see it. Between the stars, the star children are laughing and dancing.


A tender story about expecting a baby that isn’t viable and dies in the mother’s belly.
