Wish written and illustrated by Matthew Cordell (2015)
The elephants wish for a baby. Their wish grows as time passes. Even when they think they are ready, more time passes. Even when they think their wish may never come true, they still wish. Finally, their wish comes true.
This sweet and powerful story puts a very common wish of parents-to-be into words. It is made even more intense by the long and unforeseen wait involved.
I think parents and children will all love this book, no matter how their children came into their lives.
Look at all these cute family handprint pieces of art you can make for yourselves!
This last one can be made with paper or fabric instead of paint.
