The Most Magnificent Thing - Ashley Spires - Review
Author: Ashley Spires
Publisher: Kids Can Press
Release Day: April 1, 2017 available to buy now!
Summary: A little girl and her canine assistant set out to make the most magnificent thing. But after much hard work, the end result is not what the girl had in mind. Frustrated, she quits. Her assistant suggests a long walk, and as they walk, it slowly becomes clear what the girl needs to do to succeed. A charming story that will give kids the most magnificent thing: perspective!
Review: I love this it shows a child persistence toward making the magnificent thing. As she's doing this she's still making things that other people can use or love even though she doesn't like it. It shows a positive way of working through something -- take a break and come back with fresh eyes.
Recommend?: Yes! Great for lessons or at home reading!
