“We woke up in the usual way,
but it was not a usual day.
Out on the lawn, plain as could be,
stood an orange wishing tree.
‘I wish!,’ said I.
‘I wish!,’ said you.
And so our double wishes grew.”
A book to tickle your child’s imagination. All wishes are wishable… from flying high to growing candy… from becoming invisible to making friends with a unicorn. But for the parent?
“As you drifted off to sleep, you whispered,
‘Did your wish come true?’
I whispered back, ‘My little one,
my wish was just to be with you.’”
