This specialist book from the realm of 'family/parenting' comes from a "writer, poet, public speaker and work-at-home mom". Author Adria Hilburn Manary knows the issue, and packages it well.
As a parent of a two-year-old, what Hilburn Manary says makes a lot of sense.
Some of her tips are general ones, which could apply in any situation. For instance: "Goals that are not written down are just wishes." Or, "habit is a man's best friend, or his worst enemy."
But large sections of this book has specific ideas for anyone who wants to master the art of parenting, one we take so much for granted.
Across 15 chapters, this book is packed with pithy sayings, recipes, poems, pictures and text that gives an idea, actually 506 ideas, of how a parent can bond with her (or his) child.
Some tips are just applied commonsense, but covers things we tend to forget. For instance: Show your children how to make amends when they make a mistake. Or, when you have to say no, try to find something you can say yes to soon after.
One useful brief chapter is titled 'magic potions for sick children'. Another one focuses on how to cope 'when tragedy strikes'.
Take the chapter on 'Creating Memories'. Some ideas from it include tea parties with stuffed animals, family hugs, saying a prayer whenever we see an ambulance or hear a siren, or picnics in the backyard.
In a brief foreword, Helice Bridges of Difference Makers International writes: "Showing your child that they make a remarkable difference to you -- and demonstrating to them that they have the innate ability to make a difference out in the world -- is one of the most important lessons you can teach your child."
All in all, a useful book for anyone fighting the blues of bringing up young children.

Whether you're a parent yourself or you'd like to gift this book to *your* parents, More Mommy Magic will make a vibrant addition to your bookshelf!
My fondest memories as a child were not commercial activities, but *playing games* with my family. I wish more families today focused on connecting and nurturing through activities that don't always involve TV or expensive entertainment.
It's the simple pleasures in life that mean the most... and Adria gives her readers an abundance of simple suggestions that will create a lifetime of happy memories for families.

Truly magical Apr 9, 2006
I just have to write a review on this one - although I usually don't take the time. This book helped me personally - as well as giving me ideas to bond with my children in a way that is beyond the usual activity books. I keep it handy every day.
Better than the 1st! Apr 9, 2006
The first book was touching, helpful, and inspirational. This one is all of that plus, it has an even better layout, and has a cartoon at the end of each chapter to include the kids. I really liked reading it with my children.
