Back of Book:
Super Bowl champion and literacy crusader Malcolm Mitchell presents the story of a magician who reveals an awe-inspiring treasure from his bag of tricks — books that make every kid’s dream come true!
This is not your typical afternoon at the library — a magician invites kids to reach into his hat to pull out whatever they find when they dig down deep. Soon — poof! — each child comes away with something better than they could’ve imagined — a book that helps them become whatever they want to be, and makes their dreams come true through pages and words, and the adventures that follow. But each child can’t help but wonder, What’s really making the magic happen?
I absolutely love that Malcolm Mitchell is so passionate about literacy and bringing the joy of reading to others. His book The Magician’s Hat is a truly fantastic story about the love of books. The message to readers about how important literacy can be. My favorite part of this book is when the magician shows each child a book about what they want to be when they grow up. This in an amazing addition to any unit about careers or community helpers. Th illustrations are beautifully detailed and show readers the magic of reading if they are willing to open a book. I cannot wait to share this book with my classroom.
