Can you va va voom? Do you light up the room?
Marvellous Macey does!
She may not quite fit the mould, but she is living delightful days.
Embrace Macey’s world of imagination and ability to love and accept everyone.
Life may not be perfect and some things might be hard, but Macey shows us how to live in the moment and find the delight! Be inspired by Macey to make everyday the BEST day.
The pictures are adorable and Macey reminds me a lot of my 8 year old! I could see Macey and my Addy being great friends as they seem to be quite similar in this book.
As an adult, this was a quick, easy read; but it was also an easy read for my 8 year old second grader.
Most of the story is Marvelous Macey, being a happy, friendly little girl who appears to be a social butterfly, but there is a reminder where things can be difficult. There was even a page that gave the feeling of fear, but the story reminded us again that even though something can be hard, feel hard, or even get hard; there is still happiness.
For me, as a parent, I liked that this bright, happy little girl, found that she does struggle with things (school, math, reading, riding a bike, tying her shoe). It reminds kids that some things are hard and even though it may be hard, there is help and helpers.
Life isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, but you can still be delightful, even on a difficult day!
