Review of Grandma Rose's Magic

Grandma Rose's Magic is a beautiful story that clearly demonstrates the power of karma and doing good for others. It is also a sweet story about the magic of family and friends.

Grandma Rose is able to create magic with a piece of cloth and thread. She sews clothes for her children and blankets for babies, doll clothes. People are so impressed with her work and gush over it. Grandma Rose always says it must be magic. As she gets paid, she sets the money aside. She is saving up for a special set of dishes that are like the ones she had as a little girl for Shabbos. She goes to the store and the dishes are gone. A little sad, she decides to instead go grocery shopping for a feast. When she comes home, everyone is there, each with a piece of the set to say thank you. They ask how she knew they would all be there to buy the food. Must be magic!

The lesson here is that if you treat others well and do kind things for them, they will also take care of you and do kind things for you. It's a lesson that needs to be reinforced in today's society. This is one to add to my classroom collection.

I received an eARC in exchange for my honest review.
