[ I received this book free from the author requesting an honest review . I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising] "But whatever point you start from, you can get better.” Amanda feels awkward and stupid because she doesn't like to do things other little girls do. She has very few friends. One day, after getting ready to go on a field trip, she hear humming and talking coming from her earmuffs? She just can't figure out what is being said. And when her classmate asks, she blithley tell her that she hears fairies. And Daisy and the other girls accept with no question because they also interact with the fairy rhelm. Adults don't get it. They wonder if she's "touched". Amanda is learning not only to imagine, but to not take things so literally, and in doing so, she's a little more confident. After all, when you accept the difference, your earmuffs get "absorbed". Two things I thought of after I finished this short children's book: The first was "Puff the Magic Dragon", and the second is an old sermon illustration about the older brother asking his new sister "Tell me about heaven, I'm starting to forget". This is a book just the right size for a small person, and just the right lesson for children and their adults. Thank you for this story Ms. Sorenson. I will be sharing it with the littles in my life....and a few bigs too.
I received a free copy in exchange for a fair and honest review. This was a cute read. The main character is a girl who people think is slow but really I think falls somewhere on the autism spectrum to where certain things make sense to her but others don't even if they "should". The magic bit was kind of cool too. This is a pretty good series for kids so far.
