KIRKUS REVIEW

At the end of this enchanting story, the child-narrator declares that when she grows up, “I’m going to be magic too,” like her mom. Norac and Gordon celebrate the most magical person in a young child’s life and the wonderful things she can do even without “a magic hat or a wand.” The simple text evokes poetic, lovely images such as mommy’s cloud-bedecked favorite blue dress making the sky always clear and the child’s and mommy’s ability to outrace dolphins when swimming together. Did you know that “When my mommy sings, butterflies come to listen?” The team responsible for My Daddy Is a Giant (2005) has created another winner, and the pairing of these volumes makes a wonderful paean to loving parents and the lucky children who unabashedly adore them. (Picture book. 3-6)
