The Stellar Way inspires the imagination and captures every child’s attention with its compelling story and brilliant illustrations. This thought-provoking fantasy centers on two main characters: Sparky, a five-hundred-year-old star—a real superhero—and Kelly, a young girl who has found her life exasperating and wears a chip on her shoulder as proof. She learns to dismantle this seemingly gigantic chip when Sparky takes her to the Galaxy All-Star Camp, where she finally learns to become a star in her own right.
The Stellar Way’s universal appeal lends itself to all ages. The story and its researched-based curriculum has been field-tested twice and proved to be statistically significant in both studies. The supplemental guide is coming soon!

The unwavering commitment of Tina Donovan, MSEd, LPCC, to bring her divinely inspired story The Stellar Way to life has spanned seventeen years, as she has both personally and professionally experienced the need for anger management within our schools and communities. Tina’s interest in anger began during her eight-and-a-half-year involvement with the juvenile court system. It seemed that every child who walked into that court had a chip on their shoulder. While this chip manifested in different ways, she noticed one element common to all cases: anger. Tina developed a strong desire to proactively help children with their anger, which led her to pursue and complete her master’s degree. She then developed a researched-based, research-tested curriculum that uses concrete tools and activities to help children process and deal with their anger—with the help of a very special superhero, Sparky.
Tina’s research was recognized by the Miami Valley Counseling Association, and she was awarded the Wray Rieger Scholarship Memorial Award for her potential to make the most impact in the counseling field. Her focus on prevention began while employed at United HealthCare, where she developed “Mint Condition,” a wellness program which was nationally recognized by Group Health Association of America for Innovative Answers for America’s Health Care: Best Practices in HMOs. Tina is currently a therapist at Ray of Light in Vandalia, Ohio, where she specializes in helping children.
