About My Wish For You

My Wish For You is a collection of hopes and dreams that each parent holds for their child. The best of the best, but above all the rest, what a mommy and daddy really wish, is for their child to be happy with who they are. That’s the greatest wish by far. However you wish, a dandelion or clover, you’ll wish for your baby over and over. Search the sky for a star, or drop a coin in a well, these wishes are wished for your little angel. Close your eyes tight, wish with all your might! Each one will come true, just as it’s supposed to…

Our review

Once again, Amy Misakonis has delivered a beautiful book for parents and children with My Wish For You. The message of this book, that parents wish for so many things for their children, but especially just for them to be themselves, is timeless. So many parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.,  will relate to this book. I believe it will help children understand that is OK to be who they are and they will be loved for that. And like Amy’s first book, The Best Place For Me, the illustrations are beautiful and imaginative.

Here is what Abby had to say about Amy’s new book: “My Wish For You was a well-written book. I thought the illustrations were stupendous! One of my favorite illustrations was the picture of the tortoise and the hare. I really liked all the similies. I thought the illustrator’s work was very good. If I had this book I would read it to my brother. I would love to read this book again. Overall I really enjoyed this book.”
