Her 2nd grade teacher is reading “The Doll People” to the class. (My 9-year-old boy also highly recommends this series–he read it in 3rd grade.) Jasmine is just sure she’ll find an adventure if only I’ll help her remove the grate to the heating vent so she can crawl inside.
I love when a story can capture the imagination so completely. Do you remember as a child expecting magic and mystery around every corner? Trying to sneak back into your room to see if the toys were talking about you while you were gone? Jumping from the roof with your favorite blanket and trying to fly like Underdog? Okay, maybe that one was just me.
I still believe in magic. I write about it every day. I feel it sometimes when I’m around other creative people. I see it in beaming faces and sparkly eyes.
What books or life experiences have taught you to believe in magic?
