Carmela Full of Wishes


Carmela Full of Wishes - Matt de la Pena, Christian Robinson

Audience: Elementary

Format: Kindle/Owned


This picture book is too much for preschoolers and even kindergarteners. The themes of hope and perseverance are lost in a story that is hard for young children to follow or enjoy. The illustrations are well-done and the brother and sister’s faces are very expressive. I think this book is meant to promote diversity and understanding. Maybe it could be used with older elementary children. I just found it a bit boring.
