Adapted by Alvaro Saar Rios

From the book by Matt de la Peña, Illustrated by Christian Robinson.

Published by G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Reader

​It’s Carmela’s birthday, and she’s finally old enough to accompany her big brother on his errands. On their way to the laundromat, past fields of what her Mamí calls “flores de cempazuchitl”, Carmela finds a puffy white dandelion to blow, but her brother asks “Did you even make a wish?” The Newbery award-winning team behind Last Stop on Market Street portrays Carmela’s migrant community as a vibrant place of possibility. Full of touching and funny fantasies, Carmela must decide what her deepest wish is and she must do it before her birthday is over.

Age Recommendation: Entire Family  |  Estimated running time: 60 Minutes
