Caleb's Birthday Wish

Caleb's Birthday Wish Be heedful what you wish for! Birthday wishes may just be a little much potent than we give them acknowledgment for… Caleb’s Birthday Wish is a fantastic story about grasping to one’s dream in spite of whatever we could consider as obstructions. Composed by David Villanueva jr. and illustrated by Edmundo Sanchez, Caleb’s Birthday Wish conveys us a marvellous, freckle-faced 8-year-old boy in a wheelchair that desired a great deal to fly. Caleb departs on a amusing and energizing balloon trip where he is shortly caught in a tree, had a little alligator fright, enjoyed a chimpanzee race, met a sneezing giraffe and had a narrow escape with a soaring jet. At last, helped by gracious ducks (and his powerful birthday wish) Caleb discovers his way back to the birthday party that is still going solid in his back yard. The final few pages are well contrived for this age group with a maze, look for and count games and a word search. 40-pages are occupied with a light-humor and the chief character has an upbeat and dream-filled disposition. His faithful dog, Ozzy, is there with him throughout the tale – with the exception of the flight itself. I can allege with honesty, that I relished critiquing this book… ISBN#: 0-9771971-8-2 Author: David Villanueva jr. Illustrator: Edmundo Sanchez Publisher: A Better Be Write Publisher
