This series has been a bedtime story staple for my 6 & 7 yo. They love listening to these books with all the interesting characters and magical misadventures Nory and her friends find themselves on. The story throughout is about diversity and acceptance of others and self. It's a great message that is both intriguing and fun and lends itself to bigger conversations with the kids about not being perfect but nonetheless being amazing. The only drawback is that we have to find other books as good to read while we wait for the next Upside-Down Magic book to come out!
I think I've bought at least 3 copies of this book to give to kids I know, all well-received. It's a well written cute story that appeals to both boys and girls. I happen to know a number of kiddos with learning differences, ADHD, etc., and it gives them a good perspective on being different without being overly preachy.
I gifted this Upside-Down magic book to my fourth grader niece . OMG , you can’t believe she is such a big fan of this series . She is trying to relate to the character . She will only read this book every day and I had to lend this book to a friend of her so that she can read something new . Now eagerly waiting for the next in series .
My fourth grader loves this series. Can't wait until the next one comes out. The father in this series is not a model father but not all parents are and it doesn't depict him in a way that is aweful either. Any child can handle the family dynamics in this book.
The third in the series and still going strong. My 7 year-old lives to read these with us. The story line is unique with lots of fun twists. Kids don't even realize they are being taught about acceptance of others'. And now we all know calling someone "wonky" is rude.
