In her latest book in the Everything I Need to Know... series, Muldrow changes up her traditional format by focusing exclusively on Disney Little Golden Books. Pulling from popular classics like Snow White, to more contemporary films like The Princess and the Frog, Muldrow crafts a cheerful reminder that even when things feel tough, there's always magic to be found in one's life.
Readers will undoubtedly appreciate Muldrow's recognition that things can be tough, but we all have it in ourselves to find the magic in our lives - no fairy godmother necessary! - to make the changes that we want. Muldrow's optimistic wording feels especially meaningful, when paired with pictures of famously proactive Disney characters like Remy from Ratatouille, or Mike and Sully from Monster's Inc.
Bottom line: Combined together, this a book that reminds us that magic continues to exist, and we equally have it in ourselves to do what it takes to take us there.
Everything I Need to Know, I Learned From A Disney Little Golden Book is filled with cheerful drawings and friendly reminders, but most importantly, it reminds readers of the importance to continue to pursue what they want in life, and how a person's individual magic is never out of reach.
