Narrator Christina Moore brings excitement to this story of the birth of the universe. With expectant fervor, she describes the emptiness before the universe was formed, and then dramatically whispers "BANG!" as the stars explode into life. As the starstuff burns and churns, gradually becoming planets, oceans, plants, and animal life, Moore's narration builds tension until the triumphant birth of the baby ("You!") at the end. Moore's intensity does justice to Bauer's poetic text, illuminating how we are all the stuff of stars. While the audiobook stands alone powerfully without the illustrations, following along with the printed book is even more awe inspiring, due to Ekua Holmes's award-winning illustrations.
