‘Wizard Bill's Secret’ written and illustrated by Anat Umansky is a book for preschool children full of charm that tells a story about wizard named Bill who every night visits the ZOO making wishes come true for the animals.
The main quality of this book is the imagination of this talented storywriter/illustrator who came up with numerous entertaining wishes which will be adored by children ensuring book numerous reads. For example, young reader will learn about the rhino who wants a long neck just like a giraffe, turtle who wants long ears like the rabbit or crocodile who wants ears like elephant has.
Besides being funny and managing to captivate young children attention, the book certainly helps kids in learning things related to animal world.
Additionally, Kindle edition includes complimentary audio version which is of great value if you are going on a trip or any other place outside home where it would be more difficult to carry a physical book copy.
Overall, Anat Umansky made an excellent imaginative book that will both be enjoyed by kids and their parents and also given the additional version that comes for free it’s certainly book that can be recommended for reading and enjoying together.
Do you believe in magic, AbRaCaDabRa, and all that jazz? Little children with wands roam their homes performing magic, believing in fairy dust. My granddaughter, when she was three, lost her wand at Home Depot. The entire store occupants and employees went looking for that wand, that is magic in itself.
Anat Umansky, a well known children's writer from Israel, has given us a story in which we are asked to believe. Children with their parents, will love this story. Wizard Bill can cast wishes to anyone who asks, and there is a long line of animals who have many wants. Will they be happy with their wishes? The illustrations by Anat Umansky are beautiful, vibrant and colorful. Finding the animals with their wishes will makes parents and children laugh. This will be a good subject for children and parents to discuss. Do you wish you were somebody or something else? This book is told in rhyme, and I just love the rhyming. It is so lyrical, and when you read to your children, the words slip off your tongue.
