My Review –
The magical sunglasses is a wonderful story about how you have the ability inside of yourself if you only just believe.
Beautifully illustrated with bright fun images, the magical sunglasses follows the story of a class of children who have been given “magical sunglasses” by their teacher. They children find that they are now able to complete fetes they once thought unable by the power of these sunglasses only to find out at the end of the story that there was no magic after all, and the ability and “power” was inside them all along!
The story is easy to follow and teaches a great lesson to young children, with both of mine enjoying it immensely, I defiantly recommend this fun, colourful book to those which young children!
