From the Publisher

Good things happen when you believe in yourself. Elizabeth Koda-Callan writes about the hard part of growing up in a way that touches little girls everywhere. And her gift of hanging a rite of passage on an enchanted object-a golden locket, a pair of silver skates-is magical. Each book comes with a locket on a chain and full-color illustrations throughout. Together her books have over 3.7 million copies in print. Also in the series: THE QUEEN OF HEARTS, the story of a young girl's determination and her rise to the top of the baking world; THE SILVER SLIPPERS, all about the struggles of a beginning ballerina; THE TINY ANGEL, dealing with the task of overcoming stage fright; THE SHINY SKATES, a tale of perseverance and old-fashioned values; THE STORYTELLER, a tale for all those bright, sensitive little girls who love to read; THE GOOD LUCK PONY, a gentle book of fears confronted; THE CAT NEXT DOOR, about the trials of responsibility; THE SECRET DIARY, both a story of a young girl's diary and a diary itself; and THE TWO BEST FRIENDS, treating the difficulty of making new friends after a move.

I'm almost twenty, and I'm writing this review to rave about a book written for a five-year-old. Why? Although, it's plot is simple and very elementary, Elizabeth Koda-Callan's story rings true for all ages.
The little girl's realization that the magic in her life lies within herself is a very sincere and meaningful idea. I received this book as a high school graduation present, but I still wear the locket that comes with the book as a reminder that the magic that I see in my life is the magic I create.
This book is a great story of knowing who you are and knowing that nothing can let you down if you continue to believe in yourself.

Format: Hardcover
The Magic Locket is about a little girl who could never do anything right. She tried so hard for things to go the right way, but it seemed that everything she did went wrong. Until one day when her Aunt Emma gave her a golden shiny locket and had told the little girl that it was magical! So every since the little girl wore the locket things went right! That's because she believed in herself when she was wearing the locket. This story is one of my favorite children's book just because it reminds me of me because whenever I try and do something it turns out to be wrong. I think this book would be good for children ages 4 and up because it teaches a lesson that everyone should live by. It teaches you that if you want some things you have to believe in yourself first before you do anything.

Format: Hardcover
This story is about a girl that can never do anything right {Like putting on her clothes, brushing her teeth, and doing her math problems for example}. Then one day her Great Aunt comes to visit and she gives her a golden locket that once belonged to her mother. Her Aunt tells her that when she wears the locket, she can do whatever it is she wants, but only if she believes she can. She wondered what was inside of this locket that could have the power to do this. To find out what it was that helped this little girl do the things that she one day thought she couldn't do, read the book.
Having two little sisters myself, I think this is a good book for children to read {or have read to them}. This book shows that you have the power to accomplish anything as long as you just believe in yourself and what you are doing. I believe that is a good lesson for kids today to learn, so read the book today!

I bought this for my great-niece and my sister (her gramma) said it was so wonderful to see how my great-niece and her sister really believed in the magic of the locket. The other niece wants a copy of her own for her next birthday. I'm so happy the gift was such a huge hit!

...This book is so cute and touching, and not only is it a book, it comes with a locket, so it's like two prizes in one. I highly recommend this for people (especially women) of all ages.
