Description

Les petits adorent faire des voeux et laisser libre cours à leur imagination. Cet album tout en poésie montre des enfants qui expriment leurs souhaits avec tendresse et douceur jusqu'à ce qu'avec bonheur, ils retrouvent leur mamie chérie...

« Si les souhaits sont des sonnettes, nous allons chez Mamie, gentiment elle nous offre du thé et des biscuits, nous raconte des histoires, nous chante des chansons, et nous invite à rester tant que nous le voulons. »

Little kids adore making wishes and letting their imaginations run wild. Jean Little's grandmother sometimes squelched her wishes with this centuries-old saying - If wishes were horses, beggars would ride. But Little stands the adage on its head, as the wishes come true - no matter how simple or outrageous - and are shared with friends and family alike.

A familiar saying meant to curb wishes is turned on its head as children do one of their very favourite things - making wishes! They go fishing, make snow angels, play with puppies, become knights, blow bubbles, eat banana splits, go to ballgames . . . and end up at Gran's for an afternoon treat.

Original title: Wishes
