Books That Make You You Feel Like a Jeannie & Go on Magical Adventures
Kids love magical stories that inspire them, that remind them of their own potential, that make them feel like they can do anything. Many who grew up in previous generations might remember TV sitcoms like “I Dream of Jeannie,” which featured Barbara Eden as a bottle-dwelling genie who granted wishes…usually with funny results.
Now, we have a guest and a book in that same magical wheelhouse: namely, Barbara Eden and her new children’s book, “Barbara and the Djinn,” co-authored with Dustin Warburton, and illustrated by Jason Moore.
An exhilarating story, “Barbara and the Djinn” spins the story of a young girl’s adventure into a mysterious, mystical book that sends her places not even her imagination could conjure. Along the way, she befriends a charming Genie, and comes to learn that kindness, tolerance and understanding are more powerful than any magic.
