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...

This Spanish edition of Carmela Full of Wishes, a New York Times best-seller from the same duo that brought us the Newbery Medal winning Last Stop on Market Street, has a lyrical and poetic but honest and relatable feel in its portrayal of Carmela's Spanish-speaking community. A must-have for any young reader. A story of beauty and possibility amid change.
