Adoptive Families Book Review: Wish

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.
