The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires

Editor's Choice

This picture book that teaches kids the importance of trial and error. My daughter Lydia brought this book to our attention one day at the library; her 4th grade art teacher had read it to the class and she loved it. It quickly became a favorite in our house as well.

It tells the story of a little girl who decides she is going to build “the most magnificent thing.” She can picture it perfectly in her mind, but the process of making it to her exacting specifications is tougher than she and her canine assistant imagined.

Readers are treated to the funny and realistic trials and tribulations that occur as she works to bring her idea to life.
