I would have given this two stars b/c I found it kind of boring and tedious. However, I can see the appeal/benefit of it for kids around the ages of 8 or 9. A genie mysteriously appears in a classroom and gives the kids and their teacher one hour to come up with a wish. The kids and their teacher discuss a lot of different options and the pros and cons of each. It's a good way to get younger kids thinking of others besides themselves and the ramifications of our actions, even those that we don't mean to be harmful, on others.
