Children’s book review – The personification of a magic lamp!
Have you heard of the success of Flat Stanley? He’s a character that children love, he’s a two-dimensional, flat person. Interestingly enough, the symbolism is great and it even has implications for the physics of multiple dimensions, but the Stanley Dish is incredibly successful and successful.
In fact, some schools have had students create “flat stanleys” out of paper and then give them to friends to take on trips with them because they can be packed in a suitcase and then when they return the students would write about it. Now, this same creator has written another book, one that I also recommend to your children:
“Stanley the Magic Lamp” by Jeff Brown (also author of ‘Stanley Dish’ which actually started a major movement and trend) and fully illustrated with most excellent cartoon creations by none other than Scott Nash; This is a book in the Scholastic Book series, which is a division of Harper Collins Publishing; New York, NY. 2003; ISBN: 0-439-60622-5.
What if you had a magic lamp, one that could allow you to fly? Every child loves magic and flying is something everyone wishes they had the power to do. Wouldn’t you like to defy gravity too? I know I would, and your child will too.
You will spend hours with this book and enjoy the lessons it teaches your children in a very simple way, because sometimes as parents there are things we really cannot say. So trust Stanley the Magic Lamp then smile and laugh with your child.
