The Tiny Wish (a book review)

Given my love for all things small and magical , I was DELIGHTED to get my paws on a copy of the brand new beautiful and inspirational book, The Tiny Wish by Lori Evert, photographed by Per Breiehagen. When I read the book to my five-year-old, her eyes grew as large as saucers and her lips curled into an "o".  The heart of magic has been tapped! Forget about the busy and annoying world of cars and all their expensive problems, the internet with all it's paradoxical connectivity and loneliness. Let's remember a time when we were all more tied to nature. I love the beginning of the story, "Long, long ago, the days when you could only see as much of the world as a horse could take you...." With that wonderful opening, my sweet daughter and I have traveled back in time and place and are ready to take in curious little Anja's spring adventure.  It's a perfect book to read right now when winter and I should have broken up and parted ways weeks ago.
