Increase your child's vocabulary, self esteem and awareness of social issues, while they enjoy a great story!  Tilda Pinkeron's Magical Hats does it all. Grades K1-4.
My Review:
A delighful book for kids, Tilda Pinkerton's Magical Hats tells of two children, Albert and Madison Mae, who happen on a magical hat shop owned by Tilda Pinkerton. Tilda is a merry soul who gives out hats to people who she knows would make a difference in their lives, and their attitudes. The kids are amazed by the different hats and talking animals who also wear hats. They each choose a hat based upon what they wish to be. As it turns out, Madison Mae wants to be a fashion designer and Albert wants to be a rich businessman. Wearing the hats, the children hatch plans to save their grandpas's farm.

This book was a delight to read and shows children that with a little "magic" they can achieve anything. Children are encouraged to color the illustrations in the book and there is a glossery at the end to help children with words they may not understand.
