‘Imagination is more important than knowledge’ is what Albert Einstein. In the illumination of this statement, The Magic That’s Ours, has been written. This bright, inspiring book encourages children to make life-long friends with their imagination and change their world from the ordinary to the extraordinary. The book’s illustrations brim over with colour and the vivid pictures contain an element of mystery to prompt children to explore them and let their imagination fly free.  Written for children between the ages of 5 and 7, The Magic That’s Ours is a goldmine of ‘things to do’ which call for young minds to adventure into their imagination. This makes it a useful tool in a multitude of situations from the school room to playgroups and with babysitters, parents and child psychologists. The book tells the story of Joel and Jina who walk to school each morning through the countryside and across a river. Although their journey is alive with the joys of nature one morning something extra special happens. The children are drawn to the enchanting place and there meet a cute little creature called Imagi-nashun or Magic for short. The Magic That’s Ours features nine fun time activities. Through these the reader gets to learn that the power of imagination is not only fun but can break down barriers, solve problems, invent, write stories and paint pictures.
