You might wish them more ups than downs. More give than take. More hugs than ughs.
You might wish them more will than hill. More pause than fast-forward, more umbrella than rain.
You might even wish them more treasure than pockets.
In this sweet little gift-style book, we meet a collection of children performing loving wishes for their friends--endearing little concepts that will warm any grandmother's heart.
This book is a slight departure from the usual Amy Krouse Rosenthal book that I so adore. It's more traditional in style, including the illustrations, and seems (to me) to be geared more towards parents (and grandma!) than kids.
While I believe kids will absolutely receive some heartfelt messaging from its words (words so creatively penned), this sweet creation comes across more like a gift book that would make a lovely present for a new born baby.
