One child feels hope and a wish growing in their heart--and wonders: How do you make your wishes come true? In this beautifully illustrated picture book, Wishes of the World learns the answer to that question from children from the United States to Japan, from Thailand to Guatemala, showing readers that hope and wishes are universal even as we make our wishes in unique ways.


Melissa Stiveson is a children's book author based in Westminster, Colorado. When she's not writing, you can find her baking, or connecting with nature.


Khoa Le is an artist living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. She draws inspiration from her imagination, as well as her love for exploring around the world.

“Stunning illustrations employ intricate patterns and brilliant colors to bring the magic of a wish to life in this globe-trotting picture book.” 🌟 Starred Review ─ Foreword Reviews
