On Carmela’s birthday, she’s fi nally allowed to go into town with her brother. As they traverse their bustling Spanish-speaking community, she picks a dandelion growing in the concrete and determines to make
the perfect wish on it. But what should she choose—an endless supply of candy? A fancy bed for mom? Immigration papers for dad? Despite a bump along the way, Carmela Full of Wishes (G.P. Putnam’s Sons, $17.99) soon learns that opportunities to make wishes are all around. Award-winning duo Matt de la Peña and Christian Robinson (Last Stop on Market Street) have achieved another poignant, timely story. Ages 4-8.
