    I would like to do a review of your book ” The New Magic Bookshelf” on my blog, if you wouldn’t mind. Is there a way that I can contact you privately about it?

    I love the book! I feel as though you are talking directly to me in most of the situations you describe throughout the book. I’m planning on sharing it with both of my children’s teachers, as well.
