bookshelves: read-in-2011

When a genie crash-lands in the middle of a 5th grade classroom on the day before Christmas break, the students are given one wish. One wish for the whole class (and none of that pesky wishing for more wishes). How do they decide what to wish for? And can they make a decision before the genie's 2:30 deadline?

Each kid has some idea of what to wish for, but they also have to consider teh possible consequences. What if a wish isn't really as great as it seems? Always careful what you wish for!

This book was super awesome! I loved reading the arguments for or against each wish. It really made me think, especially when considering what I would wish for.

I highly recommend this book and would like to remind readers that this book is nominated for the 2011-12 South Carolina Children's Book Award.
