This is a cute fantasy story about the power of children wishing on a story. The story incorporates the children's wishes with math allowing students to be introduced to math in a literacy lesson. As the children make their wishes and seen what they receive, the illustrations display fractions to explain math concepts, but also how the wishes add together. The children continue receiving portions of what they wish for, until one night they decide they want to wish for a pig, but are hoping they will get a whole pig. They use their math skills to add up each childs fraction to see if they will make a whole. This is a great book for helping students understand fractions, but teaching them in a fun, creative manner.
