The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires

This little girl has a canine companion.  They do everything together and look real cute doing it.  But then the girl has an inspirational moment:  She's going to make the most magnificent thing!

Kids Can Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It was published the first of April so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

This is a cute story about a child trying hard to make something "just right".  I laughed when she takes all these various things she plans to use for her creation right out in the middle of the sidewalk, where she has lots of room and won't bother anybody.  Never mind about the pedestrians...

She creates and creates and creates and nothing is quite right.  She gets mad, she fumes and then she goes for a walk with her dog to think about it.  She finally sees that each had something right about it and if she melds these parts she will have her marvelous thing.  While she's creating that, all those odd things she made are being claimed by the people walking by.  They think they are magnificent and will do something just right for them.

The best part is what she actually made.  It's very special and it will make you and your young one smile.

Happy reading.
