Beautiful wishes

sdodge66 Apr 07, 2016

Works for all wishes for all ages

Dec 04, 2015

SUMMARY: This is a book of wishes such as: "I wish you more pause than fast-forward" and "I wish you more treasure than pockets."

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations were created in ink, watercolor, pastel and colored pencil. The illustrations steal the show in this book with vibrant colors and plenty of humor throughout.

THE GOOD: This book is a sweet gift book that one friend could give to another full of good wishes.
THE NOT AS GOOD: As a children's picture book, this book did not come through for me. I felt many of the wishes to be too abstract for children to fully understand such as "I wish you more can than knot" (I still don't understand this one myself). And why would you wish more treasure than pockets for a friend? I felt sorry for the little boy looking down on what he had to leave behind. This book had good potential, but fell short of the mark for the younger crowd.

AGE RECOMMENDATION: Advertised for ages 5-8. I think that can be bumped a little higher to 6-9 due to the abstract nature of some of the wishes

This will appeal to parents because of the beautiful thoughts. It will appeal to kids because of the fun pictures.
