The Magic is In You by Colin Hosten and Brooke Vitale - OPTIONAL

Hosten, Colin and Brooke Vitale  The Magic is in You, illustrated by Grace Lee.  PICTURE BOOK Disney Press, 2018. $17  9781368024617

Eight different Disney movies are illustrated in this book about finding the magic within yourself.  One page spread says something about how life can be hard or challenging and then ends with the sentence, "Just remember..." and when you turn the page the second page spread shows an inspirational part of the movie and a quote about how you can find the good in yourself and in life.

The illustrations are great and are paintings, not frames from the movies.  My fourteen year old daughter loves all things Disney and she thought this book was adorable.  My younger sons thought it was boring and "dumb" because it repeats itself, has no story line and the quotes seemed too cheesy.  This is best as a gift for Disney lovers.
