Rated 3 out of 5 by from I Wish You More by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, Tom Lichtenheld This is a beautiful story that is filled with love. The narrator beautifully wishes everything good in the world for their loved one and more.Amy has written a book that captures the essence of being a good parent, teacher, or caregiver. We always whish the best for those in our care. We want what is best for those in our life. Sometimes it is hard to explain that to children, but this book does an excellent job of capturing that sentiment and portraying it in a way that the children understand and can latch onto.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Book I purchased this book for my daughter on her high school graduation. Although it was not displayed as such, it's quite fitting for this occasion. Reading it, I knew instantly they were sentiments I wanted for her as she begins this new and exciting chapter of her life. Still makes me a little teary now a year later when I read it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle message I purchased this book for my two grand children aged two and four but it really has no age limit. The message is relevant to all ages. There is a gentle message to wish the best, be positive related to the simple things in life - the struggles of shoe laces and play on words with knot and not, the kindness of giving and the good feeling of being able to share with more we than me, the value of slowing down and taking the time to watch a caterpillar cross the sidewalk. The illustrations capture the sentiment and image clearly so it is easily grasped by little ones and appreciated by the readers. The world would be a better place if more of us practiced daily these simple statements. it is so refreshing to see new books out to inspire the next generation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish you more wishes This is a book full of lovely sentiment and illustrations. It quietly speaks to small pleasures that bring joy and meaning to life, but sometimes go unnoticed. It speaks to the small wishes that we all have for ourselves and for the children in our lives - "more ups than downs", "more give than take", "more hugs than ughs", "more we than me".
