I Wish You More

FOR THE WEEKEND, share this title with your child. 
I Wish You More is appropriate for children of all ages.
I Wish You More is a beautiful book brimming with love and hope from authour Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrator Tom Lichtenheld. Each page has a heartfelt statement that starts “I wish you more…” and whether it be ups than downs, umbrella than rain, or treasures than pockets, you can feel the love seeping through the pages. 

Practice this Comprehension Strategy-Retelling:
After you read I Wish You More let your child take a turn retelling the story to you. Have them flip the pages and use the images as a guide to prompt their memory. If they ask questions, help them out, otherwise they are the leader this time!

Do this with your child:
Sadly Amy Krouse Rosenthal passed away this week. We would like to pay tribute to an amazing author, wonderful mother, and incredible human being. I Wish You More is filled with kind wishes and sweet sentiments to share with someone you love. Publisher Chronicle Books has called on their followers to keep sharing that love, saying of Amy 

She inspired us to want more for ourselves. More for our children, our families, our friends. More for the strangers at the bus stop and for the person who took our parking spot this morning.
So please be inspired by Amy; tell those around you what you wish for them. 


You can find Chronicle Book’s tribute and pdf of the umbrella sheet here. Take a moment to fill one out with your child and share with #loveforamykrouserosenthal.
