Lucy Castor Finds Her Sparkle

(3) 4-6 Fourth grader Lucy loves magic and hates change. Unfortunately, her best friend has stopped believing in magic, and her mother is having twins. As anxious Lucy learns to accept change, she finds magic in places she never looked before. Lucy's way of speaking ("I'm quite fine") gives this present-day story a charmingly classic feel. Lowe presents Lucy's fears of change and growing up with empathy.
