This book focuses on four friends, inchworm, roly poly, dragonfly and beetle. Inchworm wishes for something to do today so roly poly suggests that they go to the wishing well to make a wish.

Cute story for begining readers.

Adorable. Art and text complement each other well. Story made the whole family smile. Now on heavy rotation with the 4yo.
Cute! An appealing quartet of bugs make wishes on pennies, dandelions, stars and four-leaf clovers.

What a charming book! My four-year-old daughter and I loved it.
