The Magic of We is a children’s picture book by Danielle Anderson-Craig and illustrated by her friend and fellow teacher (they taught at same school!), Carly Dooling. It is a tender tale of blossoming friendship in which two children meet and are transported into a world where the ordinary becomes fantastic and the known becomes surreal as their shared experience creates unlimited imagination and play.
The refrain “Being with you…” reverberates throughout the pages of detailed imagery, lush with color and imagination. It’s a magical place that both kids and parents will recognize from their own experience of finding a kindred spirit. A first book for both Anderson-Craig and Dooling, The Magic of We combines the magic of music and the music of words to describe the amazing feeling of finding someone who “fits” you.
