Lily’s Wish Book Review

I thank Dixie Minor, who wrote this excellent review, so am trying to reblog her post! I’ve forgotten how already.Her blog can be found at: https://dixieminor.wordpress.com/

Lily’s Wish
Lily’s Wish is a beautiful, whimsical Christmas book that celebrates the special love between children and grandparents. The story features Lily, a small child who wants to fly. At first, we, as readers don’t know the reason Lily wants so badly to be able to fly. But then she writes a letter to Santa Claus, and the wish seems to take wings of its own.
The author, Barbara Pyett, has written a heartwarming story that weaves together the magical moments of Christmas with a very real love that exists all year long: the love of Lily for her grandmother. The book is sure to please children as well as their parents and grandparents, perhaps especially grandparents who do not live close to their grandchildren.
The illustrations, by Serena Geddes, are lovely. Children will be delighted to follow the story through pictures and discover the wonderful surprise that is revealed near the end of the book.
This book will enhance special book-sharing time around the holidays, both for children and for those of us who are still children at heart, especially at Christmas.

The book can be purchased from Carmel_English@scholastic.com.au
