Reviews

"Cordell voices the hopes of families with disarming honesty, finding words for feelings that parents can't always articulate."--Publishers Weekly
PRAISE FOR WISH

"This deceptively simple picture book packs an emotional wallop. . . . Readers of all ages will appreciate the combined messages of affirmation, hope, and reassurance."--Booklist
PRAISE FOR WISH

"Cordell's . . . intensely personal account of parents awaiting the arrival of a child bubbles over with anticipatory joy."--Publishers Weekly
"In the spirit of Dr. Seuss's Oh, the Places You'll Go!, this is a parent's dream of possibilities, but it offers children the security of unconditional love and support. . . . A well-executed message for quieter moments shared one-on-one between a parent and child."--School Library Journal
