Storytime With Molly’s Magic Wardrobe…

Storytime With Molly’s Magic Wardrobe…

I’ve always been a book worm and love nothing more than curling up with a book. This doesn’t happen that often now and I mainly just read before I go to bed. My girls have followed after me and they love to read and listen to stories.

Storytime is one of my favourite times of the day, I get to snuggle with my girls and either read to Holly or listen to Alice read to me.

The girls are at a great age at the moment, where they can enjoy the same types of books and this was definitely the case when we were sent, Molly’s Magic Wardrobe…Search for the Fairy Star.

Right from the start the girls were excited to read the book, with it’s bright engaging cover. Holly spotted straight away that inside the front and back cover there was a dressing up wand and fairy wings. She had them straight on!

With our little Holly all dressed up as a fairy it was then story time. Holly loves it when Alice reads her a book and it totally melts my heart watching them.

The story of Molly’s Magic Wardrobe is all about the day Molly was at her granny house and inside a wardrobe she finds a fairy costume with golden wings and just like that she found herself in Fairyland.

“And with a shower of stars she whizzed away to…”

She meets Flo a fairy that was in an awful fix. Her wand had lost it’s star and she couldn’t do any spells. Molly said that she would help her find it.

The story takes you on adventure to find Flo’s star. They meet a giant, a friendly one, who guides them on their way. They meet a wolf, that isn’t a scary one and a witch who isn’t frightening.

I love that the book shows children that they are not always scary and nasty characters in books.

They then hear the tinkling of a bell and…

I won’t spoil the ending for you, but it’s safe to say that it all ends well. Molly finds herself back in her granny’s wardrobe and she quickly puts the fairy costume away.

As she leaves the wardrobe she whispers…

“Goodbye, magic wardrobe, I’ll be back another day”

The girls loved the story, it was engaging, beautifully written and with gorgeous illustrations. It’s now a firm favourite in our house and when Holly is wearing her wings, we have to call her Molly. I love it when a book rolls over into their everyday play and Holly loves being Molly.

    I think it is quite important to dress up as a fairy for a book about magic. She has the right idea!
