The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires
The Most Magnificent Thing is Ashley’s latest release about a girl and her best friend, a pup who do everything together. One day she has this idea to make the most magnificent thing! She knows all the details, how it will look and what it will do all she has to do is actually making it. She and her pup gather the supplies and start to get to work. But when it is finished it doesn’t look right, it is actually all wrong. So they try again and again and again. Finally, when she thinks all hope is lost she takes a break to clear her head. And guess what happens when she comes back? I don’t want to spoil the ending but a little time away from the problem can do wonders!
This book is geared for children ages 3-7. It teaches kids that things don’t have to be perfect to be magnificent and that a little perseverance pays off. This was a quick read my son who liked the pup illustrations the most.
Below are the first four pages of the book:
Along with the release of the book, people are getting involved with the “making” aspect of the book, they call it the Book Hack. People were given copies of the pages of the book and asked to make something new from it. Below are the winning designs, my favorite is the little wagon.
