The Miracle Stork is about the spring time tradition of the martenitsi, a tradition that is very popular in Bulgaria and with Bulgarians to this day. But you don't have to be Bulgarian to enjoy this book and it's story. Indeed, The Miracle Stork covers the wider concept of celebrating your own customs and embracing who you are.
As well as a delightful story, the book also contains a series of beautiful, colourful illustrations, a section on making the martenitsi and an activity section for younger readers. This is truly a magical book containing a subtle but important message; more than that it is a book of quality brimming with joy.

"The Amazing Stork Story"
What did you love best about The Miracle Stork?
I loved it because it is a family story that anyone can listen to.
What other book might you compare The Miracle Stork to and why?
I think it may be compared to the new Stork movie 2016
Which character – as performed by Eileen Rizzo and Eye Hear Voices – was your favorite?
Rada was my favorite. Eileen knows how to deliver.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No. I did not have an extreme reactions but I loved the voice.
I love having children's books that nourish diverse cultural heritage and aren't the usual princess/dragon fare, and there are lessons in this that can be appreciated by children of any culture. Perhaps one of the book's biggest draws is the "how to" illustrations at the end, where children can learn how to make the traditional Bulgarian martinitsi dolls. I felt this book is best enjoyed in physical rather than electronic form, as there are some cute drawings throughout, as well as illustrated activities at the end.
I did feel the message about traditions was a little heavy handed, and the parents came off as one dimensional in their refusal to follow old customs. Rada often feels a little "Mary Sue", and in parts the dialogue between her and Baba read more as a list of Bulgarian rituals or folktales. But the ending is sweet and if you're looking to expand your child's knowledge of other cultures and traditions, this might be a nice library addition.
I was given a free e-copy for an honest review.
