Finding the Magic Book by Jackie French
The ‘magic book’ is the one that turns non-readers into readers. You know you’ve found it when the kid holds it close to them and doesn’t want to let it go.
When you find the magic book – and it isn’t easy – it will so entrance a kid that they’ll persist to follow the story even if they can’t understand all the words. It will be the book that leads them to another book… and another… and another…
What’s its name? I don’t know. One member of our family’s magic book was The Lord of the Rings(long before the movie). Another’s was the Pearlie in the Park series, which led to two years straight of reading about fairies. One small person’s magic book was an (adult’s) Guide to Amphibians of Australia (for his seventh birthday). Mostly I know about ‘magic books’ because parents and teachers write to me because one of my books has been the magic for their kids. But I suspect many authors get the same kind of letters. There’s no one ‘magic’ book that suits us all.
