Here’s another terrific book about supernatural summertime happenings in the back yard. “Lawn Mower Magic” by Lynne Jonell is perfect for kids ages 6 to 9. The Willow family’s lawn mower isn’t working, but if the family buys a new gas-powered one, it will mean that one of the four Willow kids, Derek, won’t be able to go visit old friends who have moved away. So the Willow siblings decide to work together (could that be the real magic in this book?) to mow the lawn using an old-fashioned mower they find in the shed. But the kids quickly discover that “Mowey” is no ordinary, rickety lawn mower and that they might not be able to control what it cuts down!
