My Review

Marvellous Macey is a Little Book with a Big Message. Many children face daily difficulties and challenges. Whether these challenges present as emotional struggles or learning obstacles--or in merely having daily needs met--challenges often make it difficult to "be a kid" and enjoy the wonders of the world as a child should. While readers aren't explicitly told how Macey struggles--we see how she responds to the world around her with joy and light. This book is a beautiful way to show children the value of living in the moment, appreciating their gifts rather than focusing on difficulties or lesser abilities--and finding (or making) joy and kindness around them.

 

Marvellous Macey is Inspiring and Entertaining. The author and illustrator combine to create a lovely story with fun, joy-filled, inspiring images and reminders. Macey approaches her world with a smile--despite her day's pieces that present difficulties to her. It is impossible to read Marvellous Macey without smiling yourself!

 

Would I recommend Marvellous Macey by Caitlin Bangsund? Marvellous Macey is the perfect book for really any child, especially for a child facing extra challenges or struggles. I love that the author doesn't give Macey's challenge(s) names. This "missing detail" makes the book equally valuable for children facing wide ranges of obstacles! It is a great book to help refocus a child (or a family) on the "larger picture" at play in their life or lives. It is so easy for us to lose our smiles and dwell on the negative or on a struggle without shifting focus to all that is good and bright in the world. Marvellous Macey may be a children's book--but, I think parents and caregivers will benefit from Macey's messages as well!

  1. I really enjoyed reading your review. I especially loved that you appreciated the non-specific way I addressed her limitations. There were a couple of reason for this, but reading your interpretation was really reassuring. As a new author this review and spotlight is so appreciated. Have a great day!
