Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite Molly Goes to Rome is part of the Molly and the Magic Suitcase series by Chris Oler. Molly and her brother Michael are curious about the world and where other people live, so they travel to faraway places in their magic suitcase. One night when Molly and her family were eating spaghetti, she and her brother started asking questions about where spaghetti comes from, how they eat it, and so on. Then they decide to go inside their magic suitcase, take a trip to Rome, the capital of Italy, and see what they can find out. In Rome, Molly and Michael meet a new friend named Marco, who shows them all about Rome, and answers all of Michael and Molly’s questions about spaghetti. They learn how the Italians really eat this wonderful food.  I really enjoyed reading Molly and Michael’s adventures in Rome, and I think any child K through Third Grade would enjoy it much more than me! The story is fun, interesting, and enjoyable. The pictures are colorful and eye-catching, and do an amazing job of reinforcing the story. A child could easily look at the pictures and tell the story; in fact, that is just what my four-year-old niece does. Molly and Michael’s story will help your child’s imagination soar as you read Molly and the Magic Suitcase: Molly Goes to Rome by Chris Oler to them. Add this book to your library today!
