The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires
Publisher: Kids Can Press
Thanks to NetGalley and publisher Kids Can Press for the ebook ARC of The Most Magnificent Thing written and illustrated by Ashley Spires in exchange for an honest review.
A little girl sets out to make the most magnificent thing with the help of her canine assistant. After a lot of hard work, the end result is not what she had in mind. She ends up quitting, because she is frustrated. Her assistant suggests that they take a long walk and think about things. It slowly becomes clear to the little girl what she needs to do to succeed.
I give this book a rating of 5 stars. I think this a great story with a great message for children. It shows that practice and hard work can pay off in the end. It also shows patience. I really liked the illustrations in the book too. I read this book to my 4 year old daughter, and she really enjoyed it. She really liked that she was trying to build something magnificent and she liked that her dog was her assistant.
