Gift Book Reviews: The Magic of You, and Yes You Can

The World Needs More Smiles Like Yours by Laura Jane

The Magic of You: A Colorful Book of Happiness
by Laura Jane
4 out of 5 stars

This cute little book is full of inspirational sayings that encourage the reader to dream big and create beautiful things! Each affirmation or mantra guides you to make your dreams and goals a reality, pushing aside fear and embracing faith.

The book is divided into sections for Self-Love, Dream, Believe, Grow, and Create. The artwork in each section has a main color scheme: pink for Self-Love, orange for Dream, green for Grow, etc…
It’s a clever way to give some structure to the otherwise random little sayings.

I loved the beautiful illustrations! Each quote or saying has a background of pretty artwork in bright colors. Some of them are just little doodles of stars or plants. Some of them are drawn to look like a sticky note or list. Every page is so attractive and sunshiney!

This would make such a cute gift book for a friend or loved one who is embarking on a new creative dream. It’s such a tiny little book too. It’s only about 3 inches across. Adorable!

Yes, You Can by Olivia Herrick

Yes, You Can: A Glass-Half-Full Companion for Life’s Joys and Obstacles

5 out of 5 stars

This collection of inspirational sayings encourages the reader to meet obstacles with strength and courage, then forgive and find calm within themselves. One of the pages says “Work hard, then rest.” Many of the sayings in this book are about finding balance between effort and rest.

This book is divided into affirmations for morning and night time. I really like that way of organizing things to give you a boost of encouragement throughout the day. You can start the day with a saying like “Today deserves your best effort.” then wind down at night with something like “Calm your heart. Calm your mind.”

I loved the beautiful illustrations! Each quote or saying has a background of pretty artwork in bright colors. Some of them are just little drawings of stars or plants. Some of them are geometric shapes. Every page is so attractive and sunshiney!

This would make such a cute gift book for a friend or loved one who needs a little extra encouragement. It’s such a tiny little book too. It’s only about 3 inches across. Adorable!
