Wonderful Wishes is a sweet bedtime story for preschoolers. This magical tale is filled with all sorts of things a little kid could dream about and is told in a fun rhyming style. There are rubber cars, a big red train, waterslides, a trip to the moon and down into the ocean, a dinosaur that loves strawberry cake, a cleaning robot, and even a monkey to keep in the bath. Each page has beautiful artwork done by illustrator Rosy Sale that will transport parents and kids into the imaginative world the narrator has created for readers.
This beautifully written and illustrated picture book will captivate children as they go page by page. The rhyming phrases are fun and silly, making them a joy to read aloud. I love the last lines in the book “I think of all the things I wish / and picture them in my head. / I wonder what your dreams will / bring when it’s time for bed!” It makes me smile looking at the illustrations of all the things the little child has wished for stacked up around their bed.
This delightful story reminds readers of the innocence of childhood and the magic that comes from having an active imagination. Children come up with some fantastic imagery, and the author has captured that trait beautifully. I am reminded of my own children coming up with crazy ‘what if’ questions and turning these thoughts into elaborate stories. This playful book takes that idea and turns it into a memorable bedtime story.
Wonderful Wishes is a lighthearted bedtime story that young preschoolers and kindergarteners can enjoy. Parents will enjoy reading this whimsical bedtime tale as it is not repetitive. The combination of silly situations and incredible artwork will make reading this a joy each night.
