Matt de la Peña and Christian Robinson - Carmela Full of Wishes

Upcoming Event
Sunday, October 7, 2018 - 11:00am

This birthday is extra special for Carmela because it means she is finally old enough to go into town with her brother. Along the way, she picks a dandelion growing in the concrete and carries it past the panadería, the locksmith shop, and the vegetable stand, all the while determined to think of the perfect wish to make on it. She dreams of endless candies, a fancy bed for her mom, and papers for her dad. There are so many things she wants, and she’s terrified of making the wrong choice. But with the help of her brother, Carmela soon learns that wishes are all around her, if only she keeps her heart open to them. The award-winning duo Matt de la Peña and Christian Robinson are back with a poignant and moving story, set in a bustling migrant community, about a young girl on her birthday.
