I must be a sucker for good picture books, since I seem to share those more than any other type of children’s literature.
The Most Magnificent Thing, by Ashley Spires isn’t a book that’s just been released. In fact, I read it some time ago, but I saw it at the library and remembered how cute it is. So of course I had to share!
This is the story of a little girl who wants to create “the most magnificent thing.” She can visualize this wonderful thing, and is sure it will be easy-peasy to make. But despite all her efforts her dream creation doesn’t come out as planned. She is frustrated and upset after several attempts, but her assistant (dog) suggests she calm down by taking a walk. When she walks by all her creations, she takes a closer look. Is it possible there’s still hope?
The illustrations are cute black and white backgrounds against colorful foregrounds.
This is a book that is open to discussions, or can be a fun read on its own.
