First Review of Magical Matthew on Amazon

Here is the first review of my new book, Magical Matthew, on Amazon.com:
 
5.0 out of 5 stars Good "Magic" for kids!, October 28, 2012
This review is from: Magical Matthew (Hardcover)
I am a Christian Education Director and have read many books to children over the years. I just read "Magical Matthew" to the children at church. They loved it! What a wonderful story to show love and compassion for others as Matthew tried to "fix" his wheelchair bound friend Lily. The story also gives a perfect example of caring for God's earth as together they work their magic to fix things in their neighborhood, beach, and park. My children all want a copy of "Magical Matthew" for Christmas so that they can read it over and over again! And they wonder what will happen with Matthew's little sister Mea as she "inherits" the magic? We want more and look forward to the next book in the series.
