[Book Review] Wish

Wish is story by Matthew Cordell that can help an adoptive child understand how his parents dreamed of his arrival.

Disney Hyperion; 2015; 3 – 5 years

In this lightly told and whimsically illustrated book, two elephants wish for a child. They face several disappointments before their wish comes true. Wish is not overtly an adoption story, and is ultimately more about the parents than the child, but could convey to a young child how much he was wanted.
