9780863159435: The Seven-Year-Old Wonder Book

Every night Sylvia whispers a magic spell to the rhyme-elves. In the morning her Wonder Book is filled with beautiful pictures and poems of her adventures and the extraordinary stories she has heard. Every day Sylvia asks her mother, the old woodsman, and even her fairy friend Sister-in-the-Bushes, to tell them to her. They weave magical stories of clever princesses, far-away kingdoms, courageous knights, kind children, and graceful fairies.

Sylvia also has her own adventures: planting a fairy tree, meeting St Nicholas and venturing into the deep woods. But as she comes closer to her special seventh birthday, there is one extraordinary adventure left.

This enchanting collection of tales takes us through the highlights of the year as Sylvia and her friends celebrate festivals and birthdays.

(Ages 6-8)

About the Author:

Isabel Wyatt (1901-1992) was born in England and spent many years teaching young children. Until her retirement in 1965, she was codirector of studies at Hawkwood College, Gloucestershire. She wrote numerous books for children.

Review:

'The Seven-Year-Old Wonder Book tells stories about Sylvia and her life and experience through her sixth year of life. Each section tells of Sylvia's day; then she is told a story, by her mum or a friend, that relates to her experiences. Finally, just before going to sleep, Sylvia leaves her Wonder Book on her bedside table and chants a poetry spell asking the rhyme-elves to write a poem for her during the night. Sylvia wakes up the following morning to a new poem and a beautiful drawing and she runs to her mother's bed to read it. The stories relate to festivals throughout the year and, towards the end of the book, we are told about Sylvia's seventh birthday. The sense of wonder in the book is achieved through the way in which Sylvia's life stories intertwine with story-telling and with the rhyme-elves' creation of beautiful pictures and poems. A magical book for six and seven year olds.' -- Juno: A Natural Approach to Family Life, Spring 2006
