Wish: Wishing Traditions Around The World (Picture Book)

Released September 2008

Reviewed by Deb Fowler

All around the world little children traditionally have different ways of wishing for things. Also, different cultures have “lucky symbols” such as a dolphin, a key, a rabbit, a ladybug and many more. In this book you can search through the pictures to see if you can find the hidden symbols. We go on a long journey through many countries: Australia, Brazil, China, Guatemala, India, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, Thailand, and, of course, the United States!

“We tie our wishes to bamboo

the seventh of July

as children look for starts that tell

a story in the sky.”

This is a unique and very interesting book. The artwork is very colorful, busy and a young child can tell you the story by looking at and pointing out what is going on in the lovely artwork. Can you guess which nation ties their wishes to bamboo?
