    This book is cutesy text with cutesy illustrations that make up the equivalent of a yearbook inscription. wish you more ups than downs.I wish you more give than take.I wish you more tippy-toes than deep.I wish you more we than me.I wish you more hugs than ughs. ones, like, “I wish you more can than knot.” showing a little girl tying her shoe. Ugh.http://kidlitreviews.files.wordpress....Anyway the whole book is like this. It's hella boring. Each sentence is accompanied by a cutesy picture that I did not like at all, I do not like this art style AT ALL...;dr – Ugh, sappy tripe. Do not want. What is the point of this?!?!?Ages 0-6.

    Dare I read this to my 8th graders on my last day with them? Can I get through it without crying?

    This is a beautiful story that is filled with love. The narrator beautifully wishes everything good in the world for their loved one and more.

    My youngest daughter pulled this off the shelf to read before bed. I do not even recall where we got this book from. But I am so glad she picked it for us to read. It was a wonderful little book. It is a series of wishes, and to be honest they resonate with prayers I pray for my children. This book contains 14 wishes and some of our favorites are:I wish you more hugs than ughs.I wish you more stories than stars.I wish you more pause than fast-forward.Amy has written a book that captures the essence of being a good parent, teacher, or caregiver. We always whish the best for those in our care. We want what is best for those in our life. Sometimes it is hard to explain that to children, but this book does an excellent job of capturing that sentiment and portraying it in a way that the children understand and can latch onto. The illustrations are wonderful. Tom Lichtenheld does an amazing job of capturing the sentiment of the wishes and childhood dreams. The illustrations are bright, cheerful and fun. My daughter loves the pictures and it became an instant favorite.We have read this a few nights in a row now and I am sure it will be a favorite for a long time to come. It is an excellent little read and with the 41 years of age difference both my daughter and I highly recommend it.Read the review on my blog Book Reviews and More.

    The whole family will read all these Goodreads Children's Illustrated book nominees for 2015 and rate all of them. Not to say this book is terrible, as it is one of the top fifteen new books culled from a pile of hundreds. But of the nine (of fifteen; we have six to go) books we as a family have read so far, we have liked this one least.I liked Exclamation Mark by this team far better (Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld). It's clever; this one is sweet and cloying. It's okay. It features Rosenthal's wordplay such as "I wish you more bubbles than bath" and "I wish you more umbrella than rain". .. this opposites throughout. No surprises. To be fair, it may be a bit young for those listed below. But I found the artwork just okay.Dave 2 starsTara 3 starsHarry (10) 2.5 starsHenry (9) 1 star!!Lyra (8) 2.5 stars

    A great graduation, Birthday or any right of passage gift! Tender sentiments and thought-provoking ones as well, all presented with the illustrator's appealing colorful art.

    I loved everything about this book. My favorite line was I wish you more snowflakes than tongue. Adorable.

    My favorite page is the one that says, "I wish you more treasures than pockets," and the illustration shows a child with pockets overflowing with all the brick a brack one can imagine salvaging from the beach or other secret hideaways. This book is cute, with endearing pictures of multicultural children and animals engaged in the gift of giving and "paying it forward." It's not a bad book, but I wasn't all that impressed by it, and personally I wouldn't read it to my nieces and nephews. This is mainly because I'm just not drawn to books like this that try to communicate an idea or philosophy without a plot, that are said to cater to children. I prefer stories with a storyline, and books like this can ring too close to saccharine (although this walks the line without getting too corny, to me); I see this more as something an adult would purchase as a gift for another adult from that front table at Barnes & Noble, maybe for a graduation, not necessarily something young children would clamor to read over and over again. I find it odd that the things I see as "gift books" often make their way to the Goodreads Readers Choice Awards every year. :: s h r u g :: Still, it has a timeless message, and communicates it in a pleasant way, focusing on the act of wishing more for others than focusing on oneself, which is a good lesson for young children and a good reminder for adults.

    I love the team of Rosenthal and Lichtenheld. Sometimes they're humorous. In this case, they are sweet and profound. What an adorable book to read to a young one you love. Or a sweet, tender one to read to a loved one your age or older. It puts one of my favorite songs "My Wish for You" in my head. Same sentiments, and kindness in the wishing. And the pictures are perfect to illustrate. Of course.7/20/16 Used as Literacy Moment in "W is for..." theme. I had the kids come up and pointed at a word which I had them spell out for me. Only 3 or 4 kids participated, and we had a small group, too. So then I just read the rest, and tried to explain a little if the concept might have been just out of reach for them.3/22/17 I had already picked to read this for my I preschool theme before Amy passed away last week. So there was a little tenderness reading this. I decided to use it for Literacy Moment, identifying the word I ask them, and then trying to act it out. Word comprehension. Actually worked quite well with the exceedingly young crowd I had. Only one was able two were able to find the words on the page using the letters I helped them with. The others I had to point out the words. But all of them (except the ~2 year old) were able to act out the word I had them find. So, success.

    A lovely picture book that would be a pleasure to read to a beloved child. A great gift book for new parents.

    A lovely book in which the author wishes for more positivity, happiness, and moments of joy than not.

    A cute book about the pros and cons in life. Unfortunately it just didn’t grab me. Can’t put my finger on why.

    I didn't read this when it first came out, so the fact that I finally got to it after Amy Krouse Rosenthal's death makes it even more poignant and emotional. What a beautiful book. Many people have wished that Amy had more... more time to write these sweet and wonderful stories. More time to put more love out into the world. But what a legacy she's created! Perfect book to read on the last day of school, before bedtime with children you love, or to give as a baby or graduation gift.

    Delightful in many ways, this is the kind of book that I see adults buying and recommending to other adults- as gifts for any age, but especially to mark life passages. It could also be useful for young readers who are making the move from concrete, event-based stories to more abstract concepts and poetic expressions. Easy words and young images do not make picture books "immature" or limited in scope or intended audience.

    what a great way to use language in new ways--and tell someone you care about them at the same time. The combination of illustration and text is crucial--and the story of the book's process is as intriguing as the book:

    Endless good wishes for children to hear, read by someone who loves them. The description says this book is "sweet and uplifting", and it's exactly right.

    This book is very sweet, but it's more an expression of a parent's love than it really is a storybook for a child. Still, the illustrations are pretty and it might work well as a bedtime story.

    The world lost a wonderful children’s author with the passing of Amy Krouse Rosental. She had a way of making hard concepts easy to understand. You want to pick up book after book, after book. This title is no exception. I read it and think of her maybe contemplating her cancer diagnosis and writing to her kids what she wants for them; more treasures than pockets, and more stories than stars. This story helps fill that library of stars, and an excellent selection for Illinois Reads 2017.#IllinoisReads2017

    This is a lovely book and I think all children should read this or have it read to them at some point. The book contains 14 wishes that storyteller or the person who gave the book (denoted by I, in the book) wants the reader to have, such as I wish you more stories than stars and I wish you more hugs than ughs. The book also contains brilliant illustrations on each page which capture the essence of each wish.

    This is a very sweet and beautifully illustrated picture book. I have just never been a fan of what I think of as "sappy" stories. This one is more fun than many I have read, though. I am sure I will feel differently about these type of books once I have kids. In the meantime, I guess I could read it to my cats.

    Dear sweet book that reminds me of some of Robert Munsch's soft loving titles. This book is great for a small group sharing ideas of love and caring.

    A seven year old review I thought it was the best book that I have ever read. I think it was nice and kind,beautiful and sweet and I will always think about it that way.

    It was a gift. It was a gift from the parent of a student. It became the symbol of the beginning and the end. I still have it; a cherished token of hundreds of storytelling hours with girls and guys of all ages. It looks like a genie's lamp; formed on a potter's wheel and fired in a kiln. A wide wick coils in a pool of oil and then winds up the neck where it can be lit. There is magic attached to this small beacon of light and warmth. At the close of stories told, one is chosen to blow out the flame but all in attendance make three wishes; a wish for someone, know or unknown, anywhere in the world, a wish for someone you love, even a pet, and a wish for yourself. You are, after all, very special.In their newest collaboration Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld weave words, art and wishes together to bring us I Wish You More (Chronicle Books, March 31, 2015). You don't need a lamp, a star, the first robin of spring or a newfound penny. You can do it every day as often as possible.My full recommendation:

    Book summary: I wish you more is a light heart-ed, positive book. It sends a happy message to the readers to wish more happiness and great than sadness and bad. The first page reads "i wish you more ups than downs." The book goes along the lines of that first sentence just changing the words. For example, "i wish you more will than hill". This book ties together words and pictures because every page has a different picture but they all have the same message, to wish the reader more. Grade level: K-1Appropriate classroom use: Challenge the students to pass on kindness and read the person to their left their favorite line in the book, wishing that student more. Indv. students who benefit: Students that might be a little sad, this book can cheer them up and show them that there can be more ups than downs. small group use: do a reading circle and have the students try to call out a certain word when you point to it. Whole class use: I would read this book aloud and start the day on a positive note. Related books: Books like "Duck! Rabbit!", or "The Wonderful Things You Will Be."Multimedia connections: On certain sites you can order an e-book.

    http://kachildrensbookreviews.blogspo...I saw this book and thought you know what I think it would be so cute. Of course I was right. I Wish You More is an uplifting book I believe it to be. When you wish something for someone you want them to have more and of course A loved the book. She saw the line that I wish you more bubbles than bath and decided I needed to give her more bubbles when she takes a bath. Just a very cute book that I think children from ages 3 on up will enjoy. The illustrations are wonderful, the sentences are short which are great for the younger kids.

    Perfect for marking those monumental occasions in a loved one's life, this book offers a series of wishes. Since the author juxtaposes opposites and relies on word play, the book's sentimental nature is seasoned with a dash of humor and an appreciation for life's rollercoaster nature; for instance, a wish for "more ups than downs" and "more treasures than pockets" (unpaged). The illustrations are also appealing as well, created with ink, watercolor, pan pastels, and colored pencils as well as through digital enhancement. This one is sure to fly off the bookstore and library shelves. This creative team always does more RIGHT than WRONG.
