Rudy Hawkins, a married father of two daughters, has published his new book “When Growing Up Is Magic”: a beautifully illustrated and evocative celebration of childhood in verse.

‘When Growing Up Is Magic’ is a window into a young person’s imagination. These poems treat a young person’s world and ideas with great respect.

Published by Page Publishing, Rudy Hawkins’s engrossing book is a delightful addition to any home-or school-based children’s library.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “When Growing Up Is Magic” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
