Admiring Picture Books: The Magic Fan

Bridge

51-g-m2nrhl-_sx258_bo1204203200_

The Magic Fan by Keith Baker is a picture book with so many layers.  It takes real talent to write a book about a natural disaster that is aimed at children.  This book exposes children to diversity in culture, supports imagination, and encourages self-discovery.  It is a great story for children who enjoy building things as they will relate to Yoshi, the main character in the story who eventually builds an amazing rainbow-shaped bridge for the people of his village.  There is so much packed into this little book and any time I have read the story, the children have been riveted.  This is a great one to add to your collection!

Thank you for reading!
