Little Nani is a witch who likes to help people. However, she is still learning to use her magic and sometimes her spells won’t work the way she wanted them. She accidentally turned her friends into ostriches and made a horse into a bookworm. Will she manage to get her spells right? Written by Cinta García de la Rosa, “The Funny Adventures of Little Nani” is a collection of fun short stories of Nani and her special friends.

To begin with, the cover art and the illustrations are beautiful. I read this book with my 8-year-old nephew on my tablet and he loved the story very much. He looked forward to every ‘Drawing Time!’ section; he could barely contain his delight every time his saw those colorful stars, which adorned the drawing exercise segments. His reading skills are still considerably weak even in our native language, thus he tends to shy away from English books. Nevertheless, he really enjoyed little Nani’s stories so that he was more willing to improve his reading skill and even read certain chapters on his own. This is an excellent book that provides wonderful opportunity to teach children and have fun at the same time. It even brought out the inner child in me again. Cinta Garcia de la Rosa is undeniably a writer with exceptional creative gift. All her characters, especially Nani, are lovable. A wonderful children’s book for kids and their parents to enjoy. Little Nani’s magic will work on you!
