You and Me and the Wishing Tree by Nancy Tillman


You and Me and the Wishing Tree by Nancy Tillman

We woke up in the usual way, but it was not a usual day. Out on the lawn, plain as could be, stood an orange wishing tree. I wish! I said. I wish! said you. And so our double wishes grew. Wishes are a magical part of childhood. Whether we wish on stars or blow out candles on a cake, our dreams matter. Nancy Tillman captures the wonder of wishes as only she can, with love.
