In Ella May and the Wishing Stone by Cary Fagan and illustrated by Geneveive Cote (Tundra, 2011), Ella May believes herself to be extra important today since she found a specially marked rock during her day at the beach. To her surprise, her friends are not happy for her, but jealous. When no one wants to play with her, she must decide what is more important to her and find a way to help her friends get their wishes.

I loved the soft illustrations and the clever lesson the book teaches about sharing and friendship. My four-year-old loves this story and repeatedly wants to reread it, something I don’t mind since he could use the reminders to share with friends!
