A Little Bit About “I Wish For You”


I Wish for You explores the characteristics and values we hope our children will adopt, and how they can be learned from the wondrous creatures on this planet. From the kindness of a panda to the strength of a bear to the cleverness of a monkey, the natural world has so much to show and teach us. In I Wish for You, David Wax and Brett Blumenthal communicate to children the qualities we all wish for them to embody to grow up to be strong, secure and happy individuals.
