This beautiful and interesting book will let you wish around the world!

All around the world little children traditionally have different ways of wishing for things. Also, different cultures have "lucky symbols" such as a dolphin, a key, a rabbit, a ladybug and many more. In this book you can search through the pictures to see if you can find the hidden symbols. We go on a long journey through many countries: Australia, Brazil, China, Guatemala, India, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, Thailand, and, of course, the United States! "We tie our wishes to bamboo the seventh of July as children look for starts that tell a story in the sky." This is a unique and very interesting book. The artwork is very colorful, busy and a young child can tell you the story by looking at and pointing out what is going on in the lovely artwork. Can you guess which nation ties their wishes to bamboo?

Beautiful multicultural exploration and book

This book contains a wonderful exploration of wishing traditions and is a super addition to my classroom library. As a teacher, I am thrilled to have a book showing multicultural traditions for my students. Thank you, Elisa Kleven for your incredible artwork. A 'must' for school and community libraries. S.R.

A Magical Exploration

A beautifully illustrated and culturally sensitive tour of our most basic impulses to wish and hope for a better world. My children and I loved looking at all of the fascinating details and learning about the various ways we all wish. This will be our favorite Holiday gift to give!


What an enlightening book! I didn't know there were so many ways to make a wish. Each page is a festival.
