Wishes of the World

One child feels a hope and a wish growing in their heart--and wonders: How do you make your wishes come true? Wishes of the World learns the answer to that question from children from the United States to Japan, from Thailand to Guatemala, showing readers that hope and wishes are universal even as we make our wishes in unique ways.
