A simple but beautiful book. Perfect for parents to read to explain all the wonderful things they want for their little ones. This would also be an excellent book for parents-to-be to read to their baby in utero. It might even work as a sappy high school graduation present.

While the illustrations weren't my favorite part (they were a little on the dark side), I did like that they showed a variety of ages & cultures.

This book is a book about a parent that loves his/her child and wishes that they grow up and live a long and happy life, enjoying the many blessing that they were able to enjoy throughout their own. This book may be a good general library book but it could also be used to talk about where we ant to be in the next few years, teaching the kids to brainstorm??

One of my favorite picture books. Beautiful illustrations and the simplest but most moving text imaginable. The voice - anyone who loves a child; the wishes - a softly murmured explanation of what creates a happy life.

This was given as a welcoming present for your birth. It's as hopeful as you'd think.

The sweet illustrations in this book are full of so much emotion, I can feel the authors expression of love from caretaker to child in this book. The book essentially talks about all the wishes a caregiver would have for their child from birth until they are old. A simple, touching, and lovely tale to read to your child.

The simplicity of the statements of affection and dreams are wonderful. Borrow it, unless you are giving it as a gift.

I was setting up my bookshelves at school and picked this book up to read it. I have had it for three years and never read it before. Good book.
