Title: I WISH I WERE

My Mom bought this E-Book for me to read.
When I saw the cover of the book in which a girl wearing a traditional skirt, is sitting on a tree branch with her friend crow, I immediately connected to
her as I like to wear traditional skirts very much and started to read the book.
This story is a folk tale about a little girl who wishes to become someone else.
The characters are the girl, her friend crow , the swan, the parrot, the peacock and the girl’s mom and dad.
The story takes place in the girl’s house from where it moves to the pond and then the zoo and back home again.
The story starts with the girl telling her friend, crow about her wish.
Her friend crow also wanted to be a swan. So they both went to the pond to meet the swan but the swan wanted to be someone else and so the girl and crow visit many creatures till they realize, we are great in the way we are.
My favorite character is the girl because she is active and curious, just like me!
This book teaches us that we should be happy and satisfied with the way we are. My favorite part of the book is when the girl realized that everyone is special in his or her own way.
I loved this book. The book was very colorful and attractive. I will recommend this to my friends.
I rate this book with 5/5*
Recommended age group for the book is 5 To 8 Years
*On a scale of 1-5, 5 being the highest
