    Warm and loving

    I purchased this to send across the country to my two year old grandson for his birthday. Since I can't be there to help him celebrate, I couldn't think of a better way to let him know how much I wished and prayed for him to be born, and all the things I would do with him if only I lived next door. I don't think I could have done better if I had written it myself. The story line expresses the heartfelt wishes of all grandparents. The illustrations are lighthearted and fun. Just waiting to hear from my son how much the grandson enjoyed it!

    Very highly recommended, a perfect gift for new grandparents!

    This is my absolute favorite "grandparents" book. The metaphorical language is sweet and lyrical and the illustrations are softly beautiful in pastel colors. Using bears as characters was a flawless choice - they are just naturally cuddly! This is a perfect book for sharing with a much-loved grandchild!

    I Also Recommend:

    "You Are My Wish" is a great 'let's cuddle up, settle down, and relax' book.

    In this story, a grandmother and grandchild bear share an action-packed and fun-filled day before they cuddle up, settle down, and relax in the shade of a tree. The flow of this story makes it a great bedtime or `let's cuddle up, settle down, and relax' book. Some of the text might be over a young child's head. However, the soothing, rhythmic verse and illustrations make up for any complexity. The movement, body language, and detail in Satomi Ichikawa's illustrations enhance the lovely emotion behind the text. Ichikawa's colorful and tender illustrations convey Maryann Cusimano Love's message completely. The loving and fun connection between grandparent and grandchild shines through on every page.

    Many `read-together' books contain text that means more to the adult than to the child. These books often evoke the loving emotion that the adult feels for the child and enhances the sharing experience. The ones with top-notch illustrations and a soothing tone that grabs a child's attention make perfect read-together books. "You Are My Wish" is one of those books. Although, the book is worth purchasing for the illustrations alone, those illustrations would not exist without Maryann Cusimano Love's delightful message.
