So A Unicorn Named Sparkle: A Picture Book by Amy Young is a colorful book with a really heart-warming story. A girl named Lucy sees an ad in the newspaper for a unicorn she can order for 25 cents. So she sends in her money and waits for long weeks while already imagining herself to have a perfect unicorn.

Once the unicorn arrives… his ears are too long, the horn is too short and Lucy has some hesitation, is this the unicorn she was expecting…

TIP: A Unicorn Named Sparkle official website has also “find your Sparkle” Storytime activity kit you can download for free to make the reading experience more engaging.

A new Friend for Sparkle book

Sparkle adventures will continue in the series book #2 A New Friend for Sparkle: A Story About A Unicorn Named Sparkle where Lucy actually found out that Sparkle was the exact right unicorn for her! In this book, Lucy makes a new friend and Sparkle is worried that it means she doesn’t care about him anymore.

It explains perfectly to kids the basics about friendship and caring in a pure magical way!

A Unicorn Named Sparkle First Christmas Book

Sparkle and Lucy adventures will continue in A Unicorn Named Sparkle’s First Christmas which is probably more Christmas story about Christmas fun as making a snowman, hang stockings, make cookies and buy presents.

So it would be lovely reading to get the Christmas boost and do those activities at home as well… But all in all, most kids wish every day could be Christmas anyway!

And we know, Sparkle will be in the wishlist to Santa!
