Maria - Age 6

The Magic of Me says 'come on an adventure with me...' and that's just what we did when we turned each page of this gorgeous book. The illustrations are absolutely amazing with so much detail for the reader to enjoy. Each double page begins with 'Today I'll be creative, curious, brave' etc and explores how the main character is that characteristic through rhyming text and vibrant illustrations.

This book is perfect for exploring characteristics and feelings and opens up opportunities for children to share their own understanding of these. This book was shared with 6-7 year olds who loved the creativity of this book and the imaginative ways the author has captured these characteristics. A lovely book to share over and over!
