My daughters loved the beautiful simplicity of this book. A sweet story about using talents and gifts to benefit others and discovering how that's where the true magic lies. My seven-year-old says, "It's really fun. I like how she makes sweaters for things that don't need sweaters, haha!" -Emily, mom to 3 daughters (ages 7, 5 and 2.5) Temecula, CA
