OMG ... Am I a Witch? by Talia Aikens-Nuñez

OMG ... Am I a Witch?
My oldest daughter and I really enjoyed this super-cute book by Talia Aikens-Nuñez. The writing is engaging for the targeted age group, and the illustrations make the main character, April, and her world come alive and seem at once magical and accessible. Maggie liked that April seemed like someone she might know, and she found the situation that April found herself funny. Here's more about the book.
