Carmela Full of Wishes

Written by Matt de la Peña and Illustrated by Christian Robinson

When Carmela wakes up on her birthday, her wish has already come true–she's finally old enough to join her big brother as he does the family errands. Together, they travel through their neighborhood, past the crowded bus stop, the fenced-off repair shop, and the panadería, until they arrive at the Laundromat, where Carmela finds a lone dandelion growing in the pavement. But before she can blow its white fluff away, her brother tells her she has to make a wish. If only she can think of just the right wish to make!
