Heaven is a place filled with love and it can be seen in the form of twinkling stars called Twinkles. In the adorable story MaMa Pajama: Twinkles From Heaven by Mary Gavila, children see a small yellow building with a brown roof in a small, quiet corner of Heaven, surrounded by the Twinkles and fluffy clouds. There is a sign painted with red hearts above the door on the roof; ‘Love Recycling’. The recycling center’s job is to make sure that the love that comes to Heaven does not end, and is shared with others. The recycling center is always busy. The crew is made up of grandparents and has been handpicked by their boss, Poppi. The crew is divided into Team Twinkle and Team MaMa. Baby Robert is the newest member of Team MaMa’s delivery team. One cold morning, Poppi learns that his newest grandson, Aaron, will be soon delivered to Miami. He decides to design a special gift for Aaron and calls it MaMa Pajama. How does it reach Aaron? For that, you have to read the story.
