What do you wish for? By Jane Godwin
Published by Penguin Books
This delightful picture book introduces us to Ruby as she prepares for her neighbourhood’s Christmas show. Each year the children write their Christmas wish on a small piece of paper to hang on the tree at the end of the street. This year, Ruby couldn’t decide what to wish for. She pondered and reminisced over all the special meanings and memories that Christmas held for her and for those she loved in order to find her wish.
The illustrations are beautifully gentle and soft to look at and the story beams the love and joy of family and friends at Christmas.
This book would be a lovely gift to a child in the month leading up to Christmas to encourage children to think about Christmas and what it means to them.
