Reader's Favorite Review:

"Ginger Smith takes on a very sensitive topic in the The Magic Blanket. The growing number of homeless people on the street has become a cause for concern but little is mentioned about its effects on young ones. Smith's children's story talks about this from the innocent point of view of a child who sees each new day as an adventure. Smith's delivery of The Magic Blanket is stellar, to put it mildly. She deserves plaudits for all the effort that went into the book."

Reader's Choice Review:

"The Magic Blanket by author Ginger Smith is a powerful, heartbreaking, and endearing picture book about a little girl who is homeless and in search of a new place to live. Jo Jo's magic blanket gives her hope that things will change for the better. The book is both sad and hopeful in equal measure. It highlights the devastating impact of homelessness on young children and families, but also demonstrates the unconditional love between parent and child."
