My thoughts:
The Magical Sunglasses is an adorable young children’s book about a teacher who gives her class magical sunglasses so that they can each face their fears. One by one, each student puts on the sunglasses and finds the encouragement they need. One of the kids is afraid of the dark, one wants to do better on tests and another is afraid of heights.

“The teacher listened and listened, and she felt so pleased.
With the magic of the sunglasses, there was much they had achieved!”

With adorable, vibrant and inclusive illustrations The Magical Sunglasses is a great book for young children that sends the message that the strength you need is inside you all along.  You just have to believe in yourself.

Author Information
Head shot 1
Nicole McGrath is a paediatric occupational therapist from Melbourne, Australia. Personally seeing the success of bringing self-belief into the lives of children with varying abilities across the world; including Australia, Uganda, and the United Kingdom, Nicole McGrath wrote ‘The Magical Sunglasses’ to help bring the powerful message of positive thinking out of the therapy clinic and into family story time.
She currently works in a specialist centre for children with cerebral palsy in Cardiff, Wales; and as part of the role, is being increasingly asked to present at national conferences on a self-belief based therapy technique, where she is covering new grounds and educating therapists internationally.
Being an avid traveller, surfer, snowboarder, and cyclist, Nicole is an adventurer with a ‘go for it’ attitude… with the belief that the release of The Magical Sunglasses will provide the biggest adventure yet.
