Book Giveaway: Marigold Star by Elise Primavera

June 13, 2019

Marigold Star

Disclosure: I received this book for review purposes only. Any opinions are my own.

Marigold Star is marked for greatness, but she cannot figure out her magic power, so off she goes on a quest to find it in this fun and adventurous tale. A novel perfect for kids ages 8-12 that celebrates kindness and friendship.

Children's book author-illustrator Elise Primavera begins Marigold Star by asking the question: What is your magic power? It is a question the author believes is vital in order to cultivate what makes us uniquely ourselves and one that she hopes the story will leave her readers to ponder.

Marigold Star is a character who always sees the best in others but it's only through her adventure that she learns to see the best in herself. A truly uplifting story with beautiful illustrations to match.
"Marigold Star is a reminder to all of us that it is possible to embrace our differences rather than use them as a reason to not be friends," says Primavera.
Marigold Star is available June 18th. Find it on amazon for a great summer read and enter below to win.
