The Magic of Words is a picture book that will be enjoyed by children and adults alike. Author Amy Mucci has written a rhyming book that makes us stop and ponder: what do we think when we hear certain words. The book provides us with some positive images when we hear certain words but I’m sure they’ll have students and teachers thinking of more images. If you’ve had a bad day and things are not going right, this book provides reminders of better, more positive days. Teachers will love the discussion questions at the back of the book, which encourages readers to “Create your own magic. Find words just for you!” This book encourages children—and adults—to have positive thoughts and the freedom to experience and express emotions. When children are taught they are special, loved, and valued, they approach life with confidence.
Parents and teachers will love the values and positive affirmations on the pages of The Magic of Words. Author Amy Mucci has written a wonderful book full of definitions and positive words to remind us of things we can do every day without any skills. This delightful book of reminders should be on every shelf at home, school, and at the library. Children will enjoy the sounds of the rhyming words as they dance upon the page. Stylized artwork of wondering and imagining faces fill the pages. The use of color can also cause a change in emotion. On good days or bad days, this book may change your outlook with its use of color, clouds, thought-provoking images, and rhyming words.
