Books That Make You Undertake Enchanting, Wizardly Adventures

Children especially love inspiring stories of magic -- stories that make them feel powerful, that remind them of their potential.  you were like me, you loved TV shows like “I Dream of Jeannie,” starring Barbara Eden as a genie who lived in a bottle and granted wishes – often with comedic results.

Now, today, we have a literary treat in the same lineage: Barbara Eden’s children’s book – “Barbara and the Djinn,” written with Dustin Warburton and featuring illustrations by Jason Moore.

“Barbara and the Djinn” is an exciting story of a young girl’s trip into a mysterious and magical book that transports her places her imagination couldn’t have even dreamed of. Across her journey, she meets a charming and wizardly Genie who brings her on an adventure filled with excitement. In time, the young girl learns what is most important: kindness, and above all, understanding.
