Ashley Spires is a magnificent read aloud story.
A young girl and her best friend, her pet dog, work together to create the most magnificent thing. It is the thing that they young girl believes will be the most magnificent thing that she has ever made. She has made many things in her young life but this time it is different this is the most magnificent thing that she has ever dreamed of making.
She creates many things trying her best to have it be just like what she has imagined. No matter how hard she works it just isn't the most magnificent thing. She makes more and more things and soon she is frustrated and quits. When she looks at all the items she has made she decides that there are some good and bad with each item made, so she combines things, shares things, and soon she is using the most magnificent thing. Finding joy in its use for her and her dog.
This story shows how we must never give up on our dreams. If we think it we can make it as long as we work hard. I liked how others found her items useful when she didn't think they were of any use to her. This is a great book to share with your children to encourage them to keep on working, to never give up on their dreams.
After reading this book go and make something, be creative!
