The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires

The book begins with a dedication that makes me think it is just for me: For all the little perfectionists of the world. Ashley Spires' The Most Magnificent Thing is a book about perspectives. We have all had the moment when completing a project, a recipe, a homework assignment, a lesson, a pinterest activity, etc.. everything you do does not seem to be what you want it to be. You have the "perfect idea" in your head and for some reason everything you create is just NOT it! This girl is persistent and does not give up; morning, afternoon, and evening

What an incredible story to share with your students when maybe times are getting difficult in writing or in genius hour. They seem to have lost focus, become frustrated with how things are going. In reading this book, they may be inspired to take a second, fifth, or fourteenth look at their issue and may be motivated to complete it! 

I have a rating system I use for those books I have read and reviewed on my blog, you may check it out here. I have given this book five coffee cups, I love this book a latte!

I read this book as a part of my #BookaDay Reading Challenge, inspired by Donalyn Miller. My goal is to read at least one children's literature book every weekday and share my thoughts here on my blog. Please feel free to subscribe or connect with me on social media to follow my journey through the books I read. Until next time ...
