    I really enjoyed reading this book to by 5 year old granddaughte

    I really enjoyed reading this book to by 5 year old granddaughter. After reading the first few chapters my
    granddaughter drew pictures of what
    she thought Lucy and Sally looked like. We had many conversations about what she thought would happen next in the story.
    There were also times after reading that my granddaughter would dress up and play out the story. She would include her little sister in some of her acting. It was great fun.

    Book Review:  The Magic Park Chop Bone by Betty M. Block. I got

    Book Review:  The Magic Park Chop Bone by Betty M. Block.
    I got this book thinking it might be a book my eleven year old granddaughter would enjoy.  I ended up reading the whole thing myself in one sitting. 
     It pleased me to see a story of a princess brought into the present with mention of the internet instead of the standard “Once upon a time long ago” beginning.  I enjoyed how Mrs. Block let the princess use a pretend kind of  magic that was born of a creative spirit.
    Woven into this story, there are lessons to learn for parents, (no need to squelch a creative spirit if handled with grace and wisdom), and lessons to learn for the young readers, in growth in character, learning to share, becoming less selfish, and benefits of working as a team.  
    What little girl wouldn’t like to be a princess?  Yes, my granddaughter did give this book a “thumbs up”.  Then a visiting nine year old friend of hers read the first few pages.  An hour later this friend was talking about her birthday coming up soon.  “I know what I want for my birthday,” she said.  I want that book.”of hers read the first few pages.  An hour later this friend was talking about her birthday coming up soon.  “I know what I want for my birthday,” she said.  I want that book.”
