Praise for The Magical Yet "The artwork is powerful
and detailed....A solid if message-driven conversation starter
about the hard parts of learning."--Kirkus Reviews
"The depictions of difficult situations, such as learning to ride a bike, learning to dance, or practicing painting, are sure to strike a chord with children struggling to pick up something new, and the positive outcomes brought on by practice and perseverance are sure to inspire readers to never give up. A lovely addition to picture-book collections."--Booklist
"With splashy artwork and catchy rhymes, the creators give families and educators a tool that spurs kids on to success."--Publishers Weekly
