Book Review: Grandma Rose’s Magic by Linda Elovitz Marshall, Illustrated by Ag Jatkowska

*****This review is meant for parents, teachers, and other people that work with children to read.*****

Grandma Rose is gifted with a needle and thread and likes to make items such clothes, table cloths, dolls, curtains, and blankets for people. She is so good at it that to her it seems like magic. Oftentimes when she makes these items for people she will surprise them and make something extra, above and beyond what they expected. When Grandma Rose sees people’s excitement with the extra items that she made for them she gives them the idea that it must have been magic. To Grandma Rose it isn’t something special she’s doing on her own. In her eyes, what she makes for other people is accomplished magically.

Although I’m not a person that likes to write book reviews about magic I can understand how people sometimes don’t understand or joke about where their giftings come from and express it in such a way as Grandma Rose did, as if they happened magically. This book will teach children that it’s good to do things for other people, and that’s it’s even better to go the extra mile sometimes and do something additional for them that isn’t expected.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a free copy of this book from Kar-Ben Publishing. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
