I Wish You More

This is a sweet book full of encouragement and inspiration. I love the message conveyed by both the text and the delightful pictures.

“I wish you more tippy-toes than deep,” one page reads, while a little fellow stands (on his tippy-toes) in chin deep water.¬†What child hasn’t, at some time, had the experience of drifting a bit too far out, only to realize they need to bounce quickly back to the shallow end?

Or, “I wish you more umbrella than rain.” The accompanying illustration shows mostly bright blue rain coming down upon a little person holding a red umbrella. All of the space under the umbrella is white to show there is no rain falling on the child. Darling!

Amy Krouse Rosenthal (whoisamy.com) is the author and Tom Lichtenheld (tomlichtenheld.com) is the illustrator. Together they have created many award winning, best selling children’s books, but I haven’t had the pleasure of getting my hands on any of those just yet. Please check out each of their websites! So, so sweet and F-U-N!

I mentioned on Instagram last night that I Wish You More would make a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift. It’s going to be my go-to Valentine’s gift this year! Simple and heartfelt, with a radiating sense of hope and love. What more could someone wish for on Valentine’s Day, or any day? Except maybe chocolate. . .
