Lemar is a little girl who loves to “read, imagine, and invent things.” On the day before her birthday, Lemar found a green gem while digging in the garden. She asked her Tati if she thought it was magical. Tati’s reply was that she did not know if the gem was magical, but Lemar could always pretend. Lemar’s only birthday wish was to receive a pet. That night, Lemar gave a tap, a clap, and a snap, and a pet appeared. However, it was not possible for her to keep the pet. Over and over, she tapped, clapped and snapped, but none of the pets was appropriate. The story’s ending is determined by the child to whom the book is being read. Author Nesrine Sleiman has written a fun, magical children’s book in Lemar and Her Magical Pets.
Lemar’s love of creative imagination is one to which all children can relate. The beautiful illustrations by Pixel Ink Studio will also contribute to a child’s sense of wonder and magical thinking. For example, when Lemar finds the gem, a bright, white light emanates from the hole in the dirt. Likewise, the drawings of the pets that appear are cute, yet demonstrating how they are not appropriate pets. There are many opportunities for parents to discuss the intricate details of the illustrations, as well as the power of thought. This is a children’s book that will engage a child every time it is read. Lemar and Her Magical Pets, written by Nesrine Sleiman, will enhance any child’s library. It is a story fromThe Magical Gemstone Series and readers will look forward to more books in the series.
