This week our featured book is a charming tale written by Ashley Spires. It is called “The Most Magnificent Thing” and is the story of a young girl who embarks on a project of creating the most magnificent thing she can think of. However, she hits a few bumps along the way and quickly becomes frustrated. She eventually quits her project. But, with some encouragement from her best friend and pet dog, she takes a break, calms down and returns to her magnificent thing. This is a great story for teaching children that it is okay to fail as long as you keep trying and to encourage their imagination and ingenuity.
