Murphy and the Magical Hat & McKay and the Magical Hat book series were both awarded GOLD from Mom’s Choice Awards in October 2014. The first book in the series, Murphy and the Magical Hat was awarded third place in the Feathered Quill Book Reviews BEST CHILDREN’S BOOK ILLUSTRATED category in February 2014. When a rainy day threatens to spoil a little girl’s plans to play outside, her disappointment quickly disappears when her mother shares a “magical” hat with her. This “magical” hat has the power to whisk the little girl away to any place she imagines. Where will her imagination take her? McKay and the Magical Hat is another engaging story with a magical theme from award-winning author, Kate David. In this second book from “…the magical hat” series, readers are reintroduced to Murphy and meet her younger sister, McKay. Sparked from a conversation with a little boy at school, McKay finds herself wondering what she can be when she grows up? As the reader begins the imaginative journey with McKay to explore just some of the things she can be when she grows up, they are reminded to embrace and break their own stereotypes about careers little girls dream to have. What will McKay decide to be when she grows up? In October 2015, Kate David Books released a Magical Hat for children to wear. Worn alone or while reading the books, let the Magical Hat inspire your child, engage their imagination and empower them to dream big! Where will your imagination take you today?
