Fiction story: Annabel wishes that life would change. She wants different parents, different teachers, different friends. Her mother gives her an old camera for her 13th birthday--The Magic Camera. Mom says, "Be careful what you wish for from now on." This story works on the theme of "abundance", developing a gratitude for the life that we have. It also touches upon common "growing pains" in kids this age, without being preachy. Kids enjoy the fast-paced story, parents and teachers are happy with the educational workbook and the character lessons.
