Children's LiteratureThe family is shopping in the local mall and Sister sees a teddy bear that she really likes. Her birthday is fast approaching and Mama and Papa Bear have the same thought--the teddy bear would make a perfect birthday present. Sister is having trouble with math and Papa is helping her. Before going to sleep Sister sees a star and makes a wish. Her wish comes true. The next night she wishes for a better grade in math. That also comes true. Sister is really taken with a pony and once again wishes for it, but that wish does not come true. Her brother points out that the other wishes came true by a combination of events--her birthday and the extra effort she put in to improve her math skills. As with most Berenstain Bear books, there is a lesson or moral and it usually goes down pretty easily. An "I Can Read Book," Level 1 for Beginning Readers. 2005, HarperCollins, Ages 4 to 8.
